Emmerdale fans gutted as Frank Clayton dies in factory fire

Frank was killed in an explosion

Emmerdale fans are gutted after Frank Clayton was killed off in the Sharma & Sharma factory fire.

In last night's episode of Emmerdale (July 1 2019) Kerry came up with the idea to disable the factory fire alarm in order to steal the charity money for the children's hospital from the safe.

After she disabled the alarm, she sneaked into the office and took the money. Meanwhile, as the alarm wasn't working properly, the factory stopped all work until someone could come take a look at it the next day.

As Amy and Kerry went to return the money, Amy decided to keep it to pay off her debts and destroyed the CCTV footage so there was no proof Kerry took the cash.

As they destroyed the footage, Tracy entered the factory to meet up with Billy but as she waited in a cupboard a fire started.

Frank, who had just been fired from the factory, returned to get his engagement ring for girlfriend Megan from his locker and heard a noise.

He soon realised his daughter Tracy was trapped in the cupboard and tried to get her out.

As Billy went by the factory he saw smoke and called the fire brigade and alerted the Sharmas.

Tracy started struggling to breathe and Frank managed to get the cupboard door open to save his daughter.

Tracy managed to get out, but Frank went back in to retrieve the ring.

Unfortunately, as Frank left the factory and it looked like everyone had survived, an explosion went off throwing Frank against a van.
