    The streets are teeming with trouble and gangland rivalry is rife. One of the first people to stagger through the hospital doors is leader of the Blind Beggar Boys, Nobby Clark, who has a bullet wound. Elsewhere, the Light Department at the hospital is using a radical new technique, to treat appalling cases of skin disease bought on by the cramped, unsanitary conditions in the East End.
