Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has hinted at justice for James Bailey in the police racial profiling story, with PC Brody potentially facing consequences.

James and brother Michael were recently stopped by Brody as they were test driving a sports car, though their complaint of racism was later dropped by the police.

James also learnt that Craig Tinker betrayed him after failing to back him up over the fact that he wasn't driving erratically and there was no need to be pulled over.

However, when Craig returned to the station and questioned Brody, the latter responded with a racist comment, leaving him horrified.

When James heard that Weatherfield County manager Robert was pleased the matter was not going further, he decided to appeal.

In scenes set to air next week, James awaits anxiously about the appeal decision, though a letter comes through that confirms his case will be reinvestigated.

With fresh hope for justice now in sight, will witness Craig be re-interviewed – and will he tell the truth this time?

Speaking last month about the importance of the racism storyline, Michael actor Ryan Russell explained: "It is important because these things do happen.

"I watched Jermaine Jenas' documentary, The Truth About Police Stop & Search, and it was shocking to find out that some people have been stopped 20 times during a regular day.

"It affects people's mental health. Statistics show that the police tactic stop and search is biased towards Black people so it is something to have a conversation about and see how this can be changed and improved."

Coronation Street airs these scenes on Wednesday, August 25 at 7.30pm on ITV.
