Neighbours downward spiral for Leo Tanaka after death tragedy

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours' Leo Tanaka spirals following the death of Britney Barnes in episodes airing next week.

Britney (Montana Cox) tragically died in the storm disaster, not long after she and Leo (Tim Kano) got back together romantically. The incident also left Leo as a single father to their baby daughter Abigail.

In upcoming scenes on Channel 5 and 10 Peach, Leo struggles with grief and is unable to stop thinking about Britney's death.

He also tries to juggle work at the vineyard with parenting Abigail largely by himself, despite his friends and family offering their help.

Leo later makes it clear that he intends to hold someone accountable for Britney's death and sue. Everyone else tries to persuade him not to seek legal action.

Leo finds out about some of the details of what happened that night and holds Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) responsible. Terese had been told to evacuate the Flamingo Bar but was momentarily distracted, causing her to make a slightly delayed arrival.

Leo continues to burn himself out to the brink of exhaustion, with parenting, work, and legal action all on his mind.

Elsewhere next week, Paul Robinson believes he and Terese will get back together and Levi Canning starts dating mystery woman Freya Wozniak.
