Coronation Street: Viewers brand Craig ‘the dodgiest copper’ as he gives away important police information

Sarah demanded to know what was going on with Gary

Coronation Street viewers have branded Craig Tinker ‘the dodgiest copper’ as he gives away important police information.

Recently Sarah anonymously called crime stoppers and reported she knew there was a body buried in the local woods.

Police began to question Gary, who killed Rick and buried his body in the woods last year.

However when police went to find the body, it was clear the ground had been disturbed but there was no body.

In last night’s episode (Wednesday, December 23) Sarah saw Gary back on the cobbles. As she saw Craig in his police uniform, she questioned why Gary hadn’t been arrested.

Craig told Sarah she would need to speak to an investigating officer on the case, but she was furious and demanded to know why he was walking around free.

Craig soon caved in and told her: “You can’t say I said. All I know is, they found evidence that there’d been a body there, but the DNA was too degraded to be conclusive.”

Viewers were baffled that Craig gave away important police information and branded him ‘the dodgiest copper’.
