Coronation Street aired heartbreaking scenes tonight (May 5), as Nina Lucas and Seb Franklin were violently attacked by a gang of teenagers.

The gang then tricked Kelly into slapping Nina in the face, and the couple ran away. But the group pursued them and brutally assaulted them.
In the second episode, Abi and the other girl-boy revelers learned of the attack from the police. At the hospital, doctors explained that Nina suffered blows to the head and was undergoing an operation, while Seb appeared stable but had taken a turn at the end of the episode.
Corey arrived at his apartment before Asha, and tried to cover his tracks by lying to her about her whereabouts, putting her sneakers in the wash, and telling her friends not to call her on her phone. Aadi later came over and told his sister about the attack, and Corey acted as surprised as she did.
