Leyla tackles a mystery intruder at the office on Emmerdale!

Meanwhile, Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) is still the target of more trouble. But WHO is trying to wreck her life?

First, the businesswoman finds herself set-up on a date with a bloke called Gaz (Kem Hassan), which does not impress Leyla's actual fella, Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) when he witnesses Leyla and Gaz meet outside The Woolpack.

Then, later that same day, Leyla interrupts a mystery intruder in the Take A Vow office.

The intruder escapes, but not before Leyla manages to whack and injure them...

Elsewhere in the village, Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) and boyfriend, Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) are busy making plans.
