Emmerdale viewers will tonight see the year's most dramatic storyline reach its most dramatic point as triple killer Cameron Murray holds a dozen of the soap's best-loved characters hostage in an armed siege. His character escaped from a prison van last week and went looking for revenge.

Cast and crew worked through the night for several days last month filming the scenes that also use 280,000 litres of water to create a storm which is threatening to flood the village at the same time. Our crews were invited backstage for an exclusive preview which will be screened this evening.
