Emmerdale: shock heist will see Ross Barton attack a van driver with a baseball bat

Carly and Ross resort to desperate measures during scenes to be shown in the coming weeks

Is it the end of the road for Carly and Ross? It certainly looks that way after the pair carry out a violent heist in order to solve their money worries.


With the pair of them both in need of cash, it’s Ross who ends up reverting to type when he comes up with a plan to steal one of Jimmy’s vans.

While out on a country road, Carla lends assistance by blocking the road with her fake broken down car. And when the driver gets out to help her, a balaclava-wearing Ross hits him over the head with a baseball bat in order to get at the van’s contents.

This isn’t the first time that Ross has wielded a baseball bat in order to commit crime in the village. A robbery in 2014 saw him put a jeweller in hospital, while a raid on Home Farm later in the same year saw him attack Lawrence White.

So, on this latest occasion, will the risks once again end up outweighing the reward? Find out when Emmerdale airs these scenes on Monday 13 July.
