Coronation Street fans are upset after Peter Barlow broke down over Stephen Reid’s death. The taxi driver killed serial killer Stephen by mowing him down in his car.
Stephen had taken Jenny Connor hostage and was trying to escape. But having spotted him, and with Jenny out of the way, Peter put his foot down and killed Stephen.

And while the police decided to take no further action, Peter has been wracked with guilt. In last night’s episode his rage bubbled over when bully Mason taunted him about being a killer.
Peter kicked in the door to Dylan Tully’s house and grabbed for Mason. But with him gone, Peter turned his attentions to Dylan and terrified the teenager.
His violent attack was stopped when Eileen and George hurried in and told Peter to back off. Sean and Gary arrived and a furious row ensued.
Later Carla found Sean shouting at Peter and discovered what had happened.
