Emmerdale - Teen grooming storyline

Postby Samoan » 18 Jan 2019, 11:39

I'm not a fan or follower of the TV soap Emmerdale ( ITV 1) which is generally rubbish, has absurd and fantastic storylines and appears to be a village and rural neighbourhood full of sociopathic adults, teenagers and children.
However someone let me know about what's occurring recently and it's astonishing.
Massively stomach churning but Very important.
Has anyone heard about it ? (I doubt anyone on the board regularly watches the show.)

In the wake of this serious but important storyline, children's charity, Barnado's has offered advice to parents and carers on how to spot the warning signs and what they can do to prevent children from abuse.

Coronation Street did a similar teen grooming storyline about two years ago.

This evening's episode was surprisingly positive but I feel there's more to come in this story line. Hell may have no fury like a school marm scorned.
