Emmerdale: Emma to be arrested when a witness to the crash comes forward?

Is Emma about to be caught for killing husband James?


Is Emma Barton about to be arrested for pushing husband James to his death? Next week’s episodes of Emmerdale will see the police come calling with fresh news about the shock fall – and it seems that Emma will have to think quickly if she’s going to remain at large.


As viewers know, the rest of the Bartons are currently unaware that Emma was responsible for both James’s demise and the multi-car pile-up that put several lives in grave danger. But could all that be about to change?

Monday’s episode will find a guilt-ridden Emma trying to comfort Ross after his brothers break the news that James has died. But pretty soon, the police have arrived and Emma is left fearing that they’re on to her. 

Because what the investigating officers have to impart could spell disaster for Emma – a witness has come forward saying that they saw James fall from the bridge and someone standing up there. So how will Emma get out of this one? And what about the evidence that links her to that fateful altercation with James?

Elsewhere, Doug and Sandy will be seen holding crisis talks about Ashley, who is of course also a witness to Emma’s crime. The trouble is that he’s woken up having forgotten everything – or has he?
