It was the moment Corrie fans have been waiting for – evil Nathan finally in the clutches of the police.
And Bethany’s eyes finally wide open to the man – and vile manipulator – he really is.
In Wednesday’s episode, it appeared Bethany’s attempts to escape her abuser would be thwarted as Nathan tracked her down.
But as he tried to forced her back into his car – and en route to being trafficked to Belgium – the cops arrived.
Nathan was dragged away and Bethany headed to the station to be questioned about what’s been happening.
However, the schoolgirl was intercepted by rapist policeman Neil, who warned her not to incriminate him.
He made it very clear to the teenager that, even though she was in a police station, she still wasn’t safe.
Neil then threatened her mum Sarah and her baby brother.
This was enough to make poor Bethany clam up when the female detective leading the inquiry probed for details about the first man she was pimped out to – who, of course, was Neil.
Knowing that Neil was listening, she said she would not recognise him – but branded him vile.
She then shut down her interview and refused to answer further questions.

Viewers don’t know, as yet, whether Neil has managed to frighten Bethany off from taking any further action.
But they are furious with the corrupt cop’s behaviour.
