Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street aired some harrowing scenes tonight (May 5), as Nina Lucas and Seb Franklin were viciously attacked by a gang of teenagers.

Earlier in the episode, Asha Alahan was hanging out with her sinister boyfriend Corey Brent and his mates, as well as Kelly Neelan and Summer Spellman, but left after feeling uncomfortable that the gang were riding around in a stolen car.

Nina and Seb came across the gang while out on romantic walk, where Corey and the group started verbally abusing Nina for the way she looked, which caused Summer to leave.

The gang then egged Kelly on into slapping Nina, and the pair ran off. But the group gave chase and brutally assaulted them.

In the second episode, Abi and the other hen and stag party-goers learned about the attack from the police. At the hospital, the doctors explained that Nina had suffered blows to the head and was undergoing an operation, while Seb seemed stable but took a turn by the episode's end.

Corey arrived at his flat before Asha, and tried to cover his tracks by lying to her about his whereabouts, putting his trainers in the wash, and telling his mates not to call him on his phone. Aadi later came over and told his sister about the attack, and Corey acted as surprised as she did.

Meanwhile, Kelly came home and Imran Habeeb and Toyah Battersby realised she was drunk.

This storyline is going to have a long-term aftermath, while the next few few episodes will focus on Kelly and Summer as the police start their inquiries into what happened.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV, with occasional Friday episodes airing for one-hour blocks at 7.30pm.

Coronation Street has worked on the current storyline alongside The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, which was set up to challenge prejudices and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures, and extend UK hate crime legislation, following the murder of Sophie Lancaster in 2007.
