Emmerdale fans confused after recognising policeman from Vinny assault case

Emmerdale's Vinny Dingle got an unexpected visit on Monday night, as a policeman called by his bedside in the hospital.

The copper was paying him a visit to get to the bottom of his assault – but certain Emmerdale fans were distracted when they got a second look at the man's face.

Named PC Swirling, the copper – played by Andy Moore – has been a semi-regular character on the soap since 2004, playing the recurring role of the police constable.

Many fans pointed out the policeman was the same copper who regularly appears at the scene of the crime in the Yorkshire village, as fans wondered whether the police station only had one employee.

Taking to Twitter, viewers couldn't help but express their surprise after laying eyes on the copper, as they wondered whether there were any other officers in the dales.

One wrote: "I'm sure that #Emmerdale and #Corrie only have one copper. It's weird."

"Ah the only copper in the village," added a second.

And a third chimed: "It's the busiest policeman ever!"

"Same copper every time just like pc tinker on #corrie," wrote a fourth, comparing the policeman to Craig Tinker on Coronation Street.

Vinny was attacked by his dad Paul Ashdale
