WEATHERFIELD UNITES TO BATTLE RAY’S PLAN TO BUY UP AND DEMOLISH THEIR HOMES
IT’S all kicking off in Corrie. Abi works out that Ray is trying to buy up the entire street, and Sally’s council colleague confirms the dodgy businessman has submitted plans to demolish various properties.
Abi arranges a meeting involving the local residents, during which they decide to gatecrash Ray’s press conference in Victoria Gardens.
Having realised he has a fight on his hands, Ray revamps his offers to Sally, Dev, Brian and Roy. Sally remains adamant they shouldn’t sell to a criminal, but as usual, it’s sensible Roy who comes up with a plan that might force Ray to drop his scheme.
Meanwhile, Yasmeen’s trial begins, but Tim is declared an unreliable witness after being goaded into punching Geoff.
Elaine resurfaces too, but as she’s in a psychiatric hospital, it seems unlikely she’ll be able to testify, so poor Yasmeen will have to rely on the jury believing her rather than her husband.
Finally, Leanne organises a memorial service for Oliver.
