Isaac Baptiste has locked himself inside Martin Fowler and Ruby Fowler's house as his mental health deteriorates. As well as locking them out of their own house, he's also told kids Lily Slater and Arthur Fowler to get out of Albert Square. With the children now missing, Martin and Ruby are in a panic.
