With events having escalated with Sienna Blake (Anna Passey), Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davis) and Laurie Shelby (Kyle Pryor), the police are now involved.

Sienna remains resolute that justice will be done and co-operates when the police turn up on her doorstep and start asking questions.

Sienna Blake and Laurie Shelby

Sienna took revenge on Laurie by tying him up

Sinead has told the police everything about Laurie, however when they question her about the date of his first rape, Sinead finds herself lying.

She doesn’t want them to think the rape happened so close to when a happy picture of her and Laurie was posted online so she fudges the truth slightly and tells them that the first assault took place on April 1st.

Meanwhile Laurie’s colleague, Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) is continuing to take Laurie’s side and still believes he is innocent of everything that Sinead and Sienna have accused him of.

Nancy doesn’t believe Sinead O’Connor (pictured above)

When the police talk to her she tells them that Laurie’s wife, Sinead, has always been an attention-seeking trouble maker. Will Nancy’s words be ammunition for Laurie?

And has Sinead made a terrible mistake by lying about the date of the rape? It certainly looks that way when more facts start emerging…
