EastEnders' Linda Carter's Shock Arrest


Linda Carter's problems will go from bad to worse next week when she's arrested outside the school for drink driving.

EastEnders is currently teasing Linda's upcoming alcoholism storyline as the Vic landlady turns to drink in a bid to block out the worries of family life.



When Linda wakes up with another hangover, she's forced to take Ollie to school as Mick attends a doctor's appointment.

When she arrives, Linda appears in a state and backs into one of the parked cars but but makes the decision to drive away.

Unfortunately for Linda, someone witnessed the incident and the police are called, and when Linda later emerges from the school, she notices Mieko and Shelley waiting with a police officer.

Linda initially defends her actions, but she's left humiliated when she fails the breathalyser and is subsequently arrested when she's found to be over the limit.

Linda's fate remains unknown, but when news reaches Mick of Linda's arrest, a chat with Max Branning leaves him coming to the realisation that his wife's drinking is getting out of control.

EastEnders air these scenes next week on BBC One.
