A few weeks ago, we reported that Emmerdale star Adam Thomas had told us that his character, Adam Barton, was about to endure the horror of being framed for killing Alex Moss…

It was of course Cameron Murray (Dominic Power) who killed Alex, but he does such a good job of putting poor Adam firmly in the frame, that even Adam’s own mother, Moira, comes to doubt her son’s innocence!

In fact, the only person who stands by Adam is his mum’s boyfriend, Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) and as we’ll see next week, gets himself into trouble while trying to protect Adam.

The drama begins on Thursday, September 5th when we’ll see that Adam has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Alex, and during questioning, he’s scared and confused, telling the police over and over that they’ve got it all wrong.

Meanwhile, Moira (Natalie J Robb) is shocked to learn that Adam’s been arrested, and is further thrown when she’s questioned over Adam’s friendship with Alex, and then about her own relationship with the murdered farmhand.

As the evidence against Adam seemingly mounts, doubts begin to set in for Moira about her son, especially when the police find some evidence in Sparrow Wood directly linking him to the gravesite…

When he hears what the police found, Adam is unnerved and it hits him hard that someone is setting him up.

Adam pleads his innocence, but it falls on deaf ears while, back in the village, his arrest is the talk of the Woolpack.

However, he’s later released on bail, but is of course still frantic to know that he’s still in the frame. And Adam’s hurt that even his own mother doubts his innocence.

Later, Adam tries to find his gloves, but worryingly, can only find one…

On Friday, Adam is certain that it was Declan (Jason Merrells) who set him up, and so Cain confronts Declan over it…

However, Cain soon realises Declan is not the culprit, but back at the farm, Moira’s alarmed when the police arrive to search again.

They’re looking for more evidence, and feeling cornered, Adam’s terrified and desperate to escape. With Moira outside, Cain distracts the police long enough for Adam to make a run for it.

When the police realise that Adam has fled, it only confounds their suspicions that he’s guilty, and his actions put Cain in hot water when the police suspect he helped Adam to run.
