Fans of Emmerdale are upset over the latest plotline involving Dawn and Billy's baby Evan.

In the latest storyline, Dawn and Billy spotted a bruise on baby Evan's leg and decided to rush him to hospital. However, when they got there, they were told the hospital had to run further tests, as it could be a symptom of leukaemia.

Both Dawn and Billy, as well as the rest of the family, were left in shock as they waited in the hospital for a bone marrow biopsy. Even Kim was shocked as she gave Billy a hug when he returned home to pick up some supplies and tell the family.
