EMMERDALE viewers were left confused tonight as Lachlan White headed to the woods to dig up one of his victims – despite it ‘crawling with police’.
The murderer is desperately trying to keep his tracks covered but became alarmed in tonight’s episode after hearing Priya Sharma tell Charity Dingle the cops were on the land owned by Joe Tate.
She said: “They’ve got police crawling all over the woods, they’re looking for a body this time.”
Lachlan quickly concocted a cover story for girlfriend Belle Dingle so he could dash back to where he buried a body and retrieve it before the police find it.
But despite the heavy presence of the law which Priya referred to, viewers were perplexed as to how Lachlan could drive into the woods unnoticed so easily and start digging.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Thought the woods were crawling with police #Emmerdale” while another added: “Wouldn’t the police be watching the area for people going back to the crime scene?”
A third tweeted: “#emmerdale going in woods digging up body police & dogs about FFS JOKE”.
A fourth agreed, writing: “#emmerdale ah ffs come on the police are supposed to be crawling all over the place but Lachlan can just drive up. not good at all.”
Another viewer joked: “For f*** sake Lachlan! Wtf is the point in covering your face when ya brought yer car with ya!”
Other fans were desperate to know just who it was that Lachlan was digging up, having taken Rebecca White hostage and also potentially killing of ‘fake Terry’.
