Ackley Bridge Episode 4 (Channel 4 28 Jun 2017, with Lee Friar)

Ackley Bridge

Continuing the schools drama series Ackley Bridge starring Jo Joyner, Paul Nicholls, Sunetra Sarker, Arsher Ali, Liz White, Adil Ray, Poppy Lee Friar and Amy-Leigh Hickman.

Ackley Bridge is a Yorkshire mill town, home to a largely divided white and Asian population. Like the communities, the school systems have also become segregated. However as two formerly isolated comprehensives are merged into a brand new academy, Ackley Bridge College, the lives and cultures of each are set to collide.

Missy (Lee Friar) suffers a traumatic discovery regarding Nana Booth (Rita May) and fearing that social services will take Haley (Cody Ryan) into care, she keeps everything secret until forced to ask Emma (Liz White) for money. Nas (Hickman) is heartbroken when her relationship with Lila (Anneika Rose) hits rocky ground, and Kaneez (Sunetra Sarker) realises she has to alert Mandy about the Booth girls when she gets caught in a fight between Simone (Samantha Power) and Missy.
