Eastenders spoilers: Disaster looms in Walford

The residents of Albert Square are about to face more trauma - will they be able to come together?

The residents of Walford have barely had a chance to come terms with the deaths of Roxy and Ronnie, but another disaster is already looming on the horizon.

The week starts normally enough with rumours that the market's future is in doubt - again. Carmel admits that there is a plan to move it, prompting Martin to go out on strike, although he fails to inspire any of the other traders to follow his example. Maybe they feel like they've been here before.

Billy and Jay end up stuck in traffic en route to pick up a body, but at least it gives them a chance to have a heart-to-heart about whether being on the Sex Offenders Register really does have to ruin the rest of your life.

Meanwhile, Tina plays truant from work to spend the day with Sylvie and a reluctant Shirley, and Kim chucks Emerald out.

But all these concerns are about to be put into perspective by a major incident.

In the aftermath, most of the residents rally together, although it seems Max could be working to his own agenda.
