Episode #26.1 - S26-E1

Factual error: Shannon asks Leah if she knows what happened to Tom Smith - she replies that Tom has gone to university, but in the previous series Tom was only in his first year of sixth form, and it takes at least two years in the sixth form to study for the A levels required for a university place.
