And while the police decided to take no further action, Peter has been wracked with guilt. In last night’s episode his rage bubbled over when bully Mason taunted him about being a killer.

Peter kicked in the door to Dylan Tully’s house and grabbed for Mason. But with him gone, Peter turned his attentions to Dylan and terrified the teenager.

His violent attack was stopped when Eileen and George hurried in and told Peter to back off. Sean and Gary arrived and a furious row ensued.

Later Carla found Sean shouting at Peter and discovered what had happened.

“I don’t believe this,” raged Carla after Peter’s violent attack on Dylan had been exposed. Confronting him she demanded to know what went on.

“Temper got the better of me,” replied Peter. “What do you want me to say?”

Furious Carla told him: “What? No. You broke his door in and assaulted his kid.”

Peter insisted: “I didn’t assault him. I only grabbed hold of the back of his jacket. That’s all I did.”

“Pardon?” said Carla, furious at Peter downplaying what he did. “No. This is not all right. This is not normal behaviour, Peter. And it is not just this, is it?

“Because you were shouting the odds at me earlier today for no reason at all. So what the hell is going on with you?”
