Leanne Battersby (played by Jane Dawson) refuses to come to terms with her son’s terminal diagnosis and is locked in a battle with Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) against the hospital over Oliver’s ongoing treatment. However, after receiving a hefty donation from Oliver’s half-sister Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell), the Coronation Street mum could find herself in trouble with the police.
In upcoming scenes, Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) and Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) tell Emma Scott Emberton (Tom Roberts) has been arrested for the bistro robbery.
Emma opens to Alina Pop (Ruxandra Porojnicu) and reveals she accepted a share of the money and gave it to Steve to help pay Oliver’s legal fees.
Alina urges her to give the money back but the heavy police presence on the cobbles causes Emma to panic.
A police officer approaches and the barmaid is questioned by the police over the money she received from Scott.
