Bank Robbery

Ice Cream Wars was the seventh episode of the third series of New Tricks.


The battle between two families in the business of selling ice cream erupts once again. UCOS discovers most of their conflict has been exacerbated by predations of "the ice cream bandit", an armed robber whose targets were the ice cream vans of the two feuding families in the mid-1990s. Meanwhile, Gerry is having family troubles as his youngest daughter doesn't know what to do with her life. Attempting to help, Gerry accidentally allows her to take part in an undercover drug deal, incurring the wrath of Pullman and his ex-wife Jayne.
