Coronation Street fans in tears as Leanne breaks down over tragic Ollie verdict

Coronation Street viewers sobbed for poor Leanne Battersby as she broke down in court on Friday evening, when the judge recommended her son Oliver's life support should be switched off.

Leanne and Oliver's dad Steve McDonald sat in heartbreaking silence as the judge concluded that it is in Oliver's best interest that his life support be withdrawn.

After the judge revealed her decision, Leanne stood up with tears streaming down her face.

She shouted in desperation: "No, please please please don't do this! Please no."

Viewers went into meltdown on social media after watching the heart-wrenching moment.

One viewer wrote: "Tears streaming, my heart breaks for Leanne and Steve".

While another wrote: "God this is heartbreaking, got my whole family in tears (even dad and he never cries)".

A third added: "Sobbing. Heartbreaking."
