Spoilers: Devastated Arthur blames himself for Laurel's abortion in Emmerdale

Emmerdale has aired heartbreaking and devastating scenes as Arthur Thomas (Alfie Clarke) was left devastated by the news that Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) had reached the decision to terminate the pregnancy.

Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) has convinced her that she had to be open and honest with the family but Arthur took the news really badly – questioning Laurel why she is having an abortion just because the baby has Down’s Syndrome.

As Laurel attempted to explain to her son that the decision had many factors, including her fear that she and Jai may not cope if there were further complications, Arthur blamed himself, reckoning that his own recent bad behaviour has put them off having another child.

In gut wrenching scenes, Arthur promised to change his ways and become a better person if Laurel would change her mind about the termination.

Laurel tried to convince him that this was far from the case and he has no blame in the situation and he rushed upstairs, angry and upset.

This led to Laurel turning on Jai, angrily accusing him of forcing her into causing heartbreak in the family by sharing the decision.

But given that Gabby and Arthur already knew about the baby, they would have to find out at some point.

With cracks showing across the whole family, is Jai and Laurel’s future as a couple and a family unit at risk?
