EastEnders spoilers: Linda Carter loses custody of Ollie as alcohol addiction spirals?

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk Kiran Beeharry partner in the family law team of SA Law explained what could happen to Eastenders character Linda Carter if the situation was real life.

In a recent EastEnders story line resident Linda Carter has been battling with a growing alcohol dependency after struggling to deal with her son Ollie’s autism diagnosis.

As Linda’s addiction looks set to continue, SA Law Family partner Kiran Beeharry comments in The Express about whether she will suffer a further blow if her relationship with husband Mick Carter becomes fractured and they separate – leading to questions over whether if this was happening in real life, whether Linda would be able to secure contact with her son. Kiran explores alcoholism and contact with children and states "leaving aside the involvement of social services and them commencing proceedings, Linda's alcohol addiction would have to be so extreme for Mick to secure the sole care of the child on an immediate basis".
