Coronation Street has aired the aftermath of Griff's attack on Spider.

Tuesday's hour long episode contained scenes of extremist leader Griff ambushing Spider with a crowbar after figuring out that he wasn't loyal to their racist cause.

The alarming turn of events took place when Griff planted fake information with Spider to see if it'd get out, telling him the group planned to strike at Maria's Peace Festival planning session at the Town Hall.

When Griff turned up at the Town Hall, police swarmed the scene to check the boot of his car boot for a bomb — but only found a cardbox box with tins of baked beans as part of the terror leader's stitch-up.

"Just on our way to the food bank," group member Reese insisted.

Spider was still desperate to warn Max off what was happening, yet was ambushed by Griff at a supposed meeting point with the teenager.

"Always disappearing, never getting your hands dirty. You're not just a grass. You're a copper, aren't you?" Griff sussed.

Griff viciously assaulted Spider with a crowbar until Peter Barlow intervened and called the police. While Spider was being rushed into surgery for a bleed on his brain, Griff rallied his gang to regroup on the outskirts of Weatherfield.

The group eventually settled on the dumping ground nearby, with Max horrified to see Dave Fairchild pulling up in the Speed Daal van. And Dave and Griff discussed a big plan for the following day.

"Tomorrow, I'll walk into that police station, myself. And I'll be a hero," Griff cryptically told the terrified Max.
