LISTEN: Emmerdale Story 'Disgusting'

3 August 2015, 10:06

An Emmerdale storyline is being branded "disgusting and disrespectful" by the son of a man killed in the Clutha tragedy

The soap will see a helicopter crashing in to a venue - similar to the disaster in Glasgow where 10 people died in 2013.

Hundreds of people have already signed a petition calling for ITV producers to have a 'rethink'.

John McGarrigle tells Heart's Connor Gillies he wants the idea binned:

An ITV spokesperson said: 

"ITV always considers carefully the content of its programming. The Helicopter crash circumstances are very different to any real life cases that we are aware of. The accident occurs as a consequence of Chrissie setting fire to her cheating husband's car which spreads to the scrapyard.  Gas canisters are ignited and explode into the air striking the helicopter."
