Amy Barlow suffers panic attack as she's approached in Coronation Street | The Sun

TRAUMA has a hold on Amy Barlow next week as she continues to move past her rape.

A simple bus journey turns into a nightmare next week for the Coronation Street teen.

The nineteen-year-old student portrayed by Elle Mulvaney was raped after a drunken evening by Aaron Sandford (James Craven).

At the time, the lad had argued with Summer Spellman and his relationship with her appeared to be headed straight for the rocks.

However, when he realised what he had done, he rushed back to Summer, while asking Amy to remain quiet.

Meanwhile, Amy realised she had been raped as she'd been unconscious when Aaron took advantage of her and, after keeping schtum about the ordeal, she finally opened up to her mother Tracy.

This led her straight to the police station but the authorities were unable to give her the support she needed.

Police dropped the case altogether when CPS admitted there wasn't enough evidence against Aaron which has comforted him in saying Amy was lying.

Amy was thus convinced to keep quiet about her rape once again, branding a mistake on Aaron's part.

But her rape trauma is taking a hold over her in scenes airing next week on ITV.
