Missing... presumed dead?
PHIL AND STACEY ARE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND…
As the dust settles on the Square, it becomes clear that not all the locals are accounted for – prompting an anxious search by their families.
Martin’s bloodied face says it all as he screams for his pregnant wife Stacey, while Jay can’t hold himself back once Phil’s nearest and dearest realise that he’s nowhere to be seen. But is it already too late to find the muchloved pair alive?
“Imagine everyone’s horror – Phil and Stacey could be in any kind of state,” sighs our sneak. “Having no idea where they are, or how badly they’re hurt, is devastating. Their loved ones will do anything to find them – but with the area in bits, where do they start?”
While Martin appears injured himself, nothing will stop him from trying to get to his beloved Stace and their unborn child. She’s standing next to him as the protest kicks off, but the couple appear to have been separated at some point prior to the blast. She surely can’t be too far away – but are she and her baby safe?
There’s also panic for the Mitchells as they gather at the edge of the debris – and upon discovering that Phil was very close to the gas main when it blew, they can’t help but fear the worst…
“With emergency services rushing to the scene, it won’t be long before the whole area is cordoned off,” muses our informant. “So as the clock ticks on their frantic search, can Martin and the Mitchells get to Stacey and Phil before it’s too late?”
