Coronation Street's Abi Franklin desperately searches for answers over the tragic death of her son Seb tonight (May 10).

Abi was left devastated last week as Seb passed away in hospital after being subjected to a brutal attack.

Corey Brent and a gang of other thugs targeted Seb and his girlfriend Nina Lucas in a hate crime attack, mocking Nina for her alternative identity. Corey is currently trying to cover his tracks to stay out of trouble with the police.

In Monday's episodes, Abi heads to see Nina in her hospital room.

With the police not making much progress, Abi thinks that she'll have to discover the identity of Seb's killer herself.

When Abi pushes Nina for the exact details of what happened, Nina gets upset as she can't remember.

Nina explains that it's all a blur, leaving Abi worried that those responsible may never be brought to justice.

Sally Carman, who plays Abi, recently explained: "Due to the impulsive, emotional creature that Abi is, there isn't a lot of emotional maturity going on there. It is not good.

"There are a few days where she tries to take matters into her own hands, but luckily she is talked down. She is really trying to hook onto something the only way she knows how. Her heart has been ripped open and there is a lot of guilt there as she wasn't there when Seb was growing up.

"There is so much she has to deal with and she hasn't got a clue. She is reeling and Corey very nearly becomes a culprit of this a couple of times."

Coronation Street airs tonight at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.

Anyone who has witnessed or experienced a hate crime is urged to call the police on 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit the True Vision website. In an emergency, always dial 999.

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.
