EMMERDALE could be investigated by Ofcom after the watchdog received 74 complaints after Lachlan White brutally bludgeoned Gerry Roberts to death in last night's double bill. Viewers contacted the UK communications regulator following the two episodes, which saw evil Lachlan - played by Thomas Atkinson - bash his pal Gerry (Shaun Thomas) over the head with a huge stone. An Ofcom spokesperson told BANG Showbiz: "We received 74 complaints." While the impact of the stone hitting poor Gerry was not shown on screen, viewers watched on as the hapless character lay under a pile of rubble after calculated Lachlan made the B&B collapse on top of him.

The indictment also claims Concord Management was the “primary source of funding for [Russian] interference operations.” The document goes on to accuse the company of concealing … [Read more...] about Is Robert Mueller’s Russian Troll Farm Indictment Falling Apart?
