THE storm in the Dales made many victims in just a handful of days and Samson Dingle even went missing.
His family desperately await news in Emmerdale – but he’s soon found isolated and lifeless.
The lad went missing in recent scenes of the Yorkshire-based drama, as a storm ripped through the village and made multiple victims along the way.
This leaves Lydia with the knowledge that she needs to tell her husband Sam (James Hooton) but she dreads the conversation.
ITV viewers will know that Sam suffered a great deal during the storm.
The farm hand was impaled on a spike after he tried to run away from a dangerous cow stampede in Butler’s Farm.
He was taken into surgery and is recovering from his injuries.
Sam blames himself for the situation once he finds out his son has gone missing and Lydia is pained by his clear distress.
Intussen, Sam isn’t the only one worrying about Samson as Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) is just as concerned for the youngster’s well-being.
