The village of Emmerdale faced more devastation last night as the ITV soap's dramatic helicopter crash claimed another victim.

Val Pollard, played by Charlie Hardwick, became the second casualty following the demise of Ruby Haswell (Alicia Eyo).

Val and her sister Diane Sugden (Elizabeth Estensen) were left trapped in the mirror maze during the wedding celebrations of Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) and Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan), after an explosion caused the newlyweds' helicopter to plough into the village hall.

Diane escaped the maze but Val was not so lucky. Andy Sugden (Kelvin Fletcher) and Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) looked on in shock as they realised Val had died.
