With just seven days to go, the remaining fugitives must reach a pre-arranged extraction point to evade capture once and for all. But with the clock ticking, the hunters are ramping up their efforts to find them. Stephen and Martin have avoided detection by travelling along canal towpaths – only to appear on the radar after using a cashpoint. School friends Emily and Lauren are still evading capture, despite going their separate ways, although Emily unwittingly trusts some strangers with valuable information. Is this the end of the road for the fugitives or have the breakthroughs come too late? Last in the series.
