MORE DETAILED SPOILERS

Episode 3622 - New Year's Day - Thursday 1 January 2004 at 6:30pm **Hour-long special**

As the storm takes hold, Louise stirs in the car wreckage and tries to get the door open. Realising that she is trapped and unable to stir Ashley, Louise desperately screams for help. Horrified Paddy wades into the water and tries to keep her calm until the police and ambulances arrive.

Later Emily and Laurel are sickened to overhear a paramedic say that Ashley’s leg may need to be amputated. Laurel sits by Ashley’s side trying to reassure him as he rapidly loses blood. Firemen struggle to cut the victims from the tangled wreckage but time is running out for Ashley.

Meanwhile, Jack and Andy desperately tend to the bulls on the farm in the torrential rain and howling wind. With a nasty cut on his hand, Robert heads inside accompanied by Katie. As she examines the cut the pair end up in a passionate clinch.

As trees and telegraph poles fall and roof slates are ripped from houses by the wind, lonely Tricia waits at the bus stop in the abysmal weather to leave the village for good.

Tricia takes out the letter from Marlon listing 101 things he loves about her and realising that she is not ready to say goodbye, she heads back to the Woolpack. But tragedy follows as the bus shelter is struck by lightening, followed by the pub itself, which collapses on top of her. Terrified Tricia is trapped underneath the rubble and lies motionless, will anyone get to her in time?

 Ananova: 
Emmerdale set for New Year storm

Emmerdale is set to be hit by a second major disaster with the arrival of a devastating New Year storm.

There will be at least one death in the show from what programme makers say will be "some of the soap's most dramatic scenes".

The show promises lavish special effects for the storm, which comes a decade after the village was torn apart by a plane crash, killing many.

The horrific weather will be seen hitting the Yorkshire village on New Year's Eve. Roof slates will be torn from houses by the howling wind as it rips through, plunging everyone into darkness.

Key characters will be involved in the plot, although programme chiefs are keeping a lid on who will die.

A one-hour edition of Emmerdale will also be seen on New Year's Day.

Series producer Steve Frost said: "We are confident that this will be the biggest soap event in the past ten years.

"Shooting the storm has involved specially created wind and rain effects, electronic post production and a vastly experienced stunt team.

"The entire cast are involved and no-one will be left unscathed."

Teletext: Emmerdale to be hit by death storm

Emmerdale is to be hit by a New Year "storm of the century" in which at least one of the characters dies.

The ITV1 soap village will be hit by horrific weather on December 31 with howling winds, slates torn from roofs and power cuts.

A spokeswoman said: "It will feature some of the soap's most dramatic scenes ever. The storm will leave behind a trail of destruction and heartbreak. Key characters are involved."

Emmerdale chiefs say the New Year storm plot will be the "the biggest soap event in 10 years".

Series producer Steve Frost said: "Shooting the storm has involved specially created wind and rain effects, electronic post production and a vastly experienced stunt team. The entire cast is involved and no-one is left unscathed."

But he refused to reveal the identity of the character who will die in the storm.

The plot will revive memories of the plane crash which hit the soap village in 1993.

Four people died in the late December tragedy including Annie Sugden's new husband Leonard Kempinski. The others were Archie Brooks, Mark Hughes and Elizabeth Pollard.

Following the scenes on December 31, there will be a one-hour Emmerdale special on New Year's Day.

Emmerdale harm

A VIOLENT storm is to hit Emmerdale — leaving residents buried alive.

Buildings collapse and roofs are blown away in the New Year special.

Key cast members will be killed off — including barmaid Tricia Dingle, who is played by Sheree Murphy.

She dies when a chimney falls from the Woolpack.

It is the ITV1 soap’s biggest tragedy since the Lockerbie-style jet disaster.

A show insider said: “It will be ten years to the day since the plane crash, where members of the cast were killed off in a fireball (pictured above).

“The scenes will be the most spectacular we’ve ever done and the storm will leave Emmerdale completely flattened.”

The drama unfolds in a one-hour episode on New Year’s Eve.

Fans will see the terrible aftermath in the following day’s episode.
