Emmerdale villain Meena has finally been locked up for her shocking crimes (ITV)

Emmerdale serial killer Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) was finally charged by the police in Tuesday’s episode, after her box of sick trophies was found by Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) and Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson).

Following an explosive week of revenge that ultimately led to her incarceration, Meena sat feeling smugly confident in her cell after claiming that she killed Ben Tucker (Simon Lennon) in self-defence.

She also bragged that there was nothing to link her to the other killings. But thanks to the evidence unearthed at the allotment, everything changed.
