Leanne is distraught by what she’s done
A woman rushed up to her and begged her to help a man who collapsed, but Leanne, horrified, refused and rushed away.
Later she discovered the man had died and blamed herself – plunging herself into deeper despair.
Meanwhile fans are heartbroken for Leanne after she was arrested for dealing drugs after going to the police for help.
She has been forced to sell drugs for gangster Harvey.
Coronation Street’s Leanne Battersby has not had a great year
She was dragged into his criminal gang after doing a deal to save her son Simon from the same fate.
But tonight after Harvey threatened her again, she had had enough and went to the police for help.
She told them everything that was going on – but she was in for a huge shock.
“I’m DS Glynne, the inquiry officer showed me your statement,” an officer told her as he interviewed her after she gave her statement.
She decided to tell police about the drugs trouble she’d got herself into
“We just need to go over it in more detail.”
Frustrated, Leanne demanded to know why saying: “Why?
“I’ve already told you who’s supplying the drugs and you know the threats me and my son have been facing – why can’t you just go after them?”
But the policeman had a bombshell to drop on her – she was a criminal to them.
But she was shocked when police said they had to arrest her
“With all due respect, I don’t think you understand the seriousness of your situation,” he said.
“From the information you’ve given us already we have no choice but to arrest you on suspicion of the supply of illegal drugs.”

Leanne looked terrified and fans were heartbroken for her.
One wrote: “I wonder if Leanne could twist this around in her favour of once more the police could be reasonable with her and offer her a lifeline to get information on Harvey. Either way I don’t think she will go to prison. I hope Leanne knows that she is doing.
A second said: “Leanne doing the right thing and ended up getting arrested!”
Another added: “Wow! Leanne has had a sh****r of a day.”
