What happened to Adam Barton in Emmerdale?

In 2017, Emma Barton seemingly fell off the Hotten viaduct. But an autopsy revealed that she was actually pushed.

A flashback revealed that Adam’s mum Moira was the one who pushed Emma during an argument.

In an attempt to save her from going to prison, he confessed to his aunt’s murder.

On the day of Adam’s sentencing, his best friend Aaron and stepdad Cain ambushed the prison van and broke Adam out.

They took him to the docks giving him a new passport and money to start a new life. He soon left on a cargo ship, fleeing the country, leaving his family and wife Victoria behind.
