Emmerdale fans have been left horrified by the street brawl between Rhona Goskirk and Brenda Walker.

The pair came to blows on Thursday night’s episode of the ITV soap opera as the cyber-bullying storyline surrounding April Windsor reached a dramatic conclusion.

Tormented April Windsor learned on Wednesday that her best friend and aunt Cathy Hope had begun the campaign of terror against her on social media.

April was furious as Cathy begged her to keep it a secret before April fled home.

On Thursday night, April finally opened up and told dad Marlon Dingle’s girlfriend Rhona what Cathy had done.

Rhona also opened up to Marlon about what Cathy had done and the knock-on effect it had for April.

Meanwhile, Cathy’s dad Bob and step-mother Brenda were panicked when son Heath tells them his sister is missing.

After the group continued searching for Cathy, a furious Rhona was the one to find the bully and revealed she would expose her while Cathy made excuses.

Cathy fled and when Rhona caught up with her she grabbed the schoolgirl, prompting Brenda to step in.

However, Rhona elbowed Brenda and hit her in the face.
