Troublesome Cindy Williams (Mimi Keene) will cause fresh concern for the Beales next week when she disappears from Walford in the company of strangers.
Scenes to be shown on Monday 13 July will see Cindy fall out with her family after Ian reveals that Jane is paying Carol to look after her.
Following a huge argument, Cindy returns to the Butchers’ and confronts Liam and Carol about what she sees as their betrayal. Later on, Cindy heads to the Albert and asks two men to buy her drinks. But when Liam arrives looking for her, he gets a shock when he sees her getting into a car with them.
A worried Liam rushes to tell Ian and Jane, who quickly call the police. Cindy, meanwhile, begins to have second thoughts about her decision as it appears that she could be in danger. With Ian’s world spiralling out of control once again, can Cindy be found?
