"I didn't do it! It wasn't me!"
— Ned after running over the slate

Jack Owns Up is a Jack and the Pack episode.


Thomas takes Jack and Alfie to a warehouse site for work. The Pack are told to work carefully, or anyone who caused an accident will be send back to the yards. Ned was worried as he always cause accidents, but he didn't want to be send back to the yards. His operator tells him not to worry and will watch over him.

Everyone was working very carefully, except Jack who was going too fast. Kelly tells Jack to slow down but Jack thinks he'll be fine. But Jack knocks over a stack of roofing slate, but no one, not even his operator noticed. Jack knew what he done, but he didn't want to go back to the yards, so he drove away. Ned comes over and accidentally drives over the slate. His operator blames him for knocking them over, but Ned said he didn't do it, but no one believed him, so his operator called Miss Jenny.

As Ned is about to be sent away, Jack saw Ned heading to Thomas' flatbed as Alfie pulled up alongside. Alfie told Jack about what Ned did and that Thomas was taking him back to the yards. Knowing that it was all his fault, Jack admits to Miss Jenny the truth that he knocked over the slates. Jack apologises to Ned and Thomas takes Jack back to the yard, proud of him.
