Fair City warns viewers of upsetting scenes as Will leaves Cristiano for dead

Graphic scenes ahead.

Fair City has warned viewers of upsetting scenes ahead of tonight's episode.

This evening's instalment of the soap will see Will attack Cristiano and leave him for dead, as the show's abusive relationship storyline comes to a head.

Last night saw Will, played by John Cronin, lock himself and Cristiano, played by Rodrigo Ternevoy, into their apartment.

Verbal abuse is set to turn to physical violence tonight as Will attacks his partner after he attempts to stand up for himself.

Left for dead, Cristiano is abandoned in the apartment as Will attempts to make a getaway.

However, Will is thankfully struck by a passing car as he attempts to flee the scene leaving him bound for hospital.

Cristiano is later saved by Damien and Mairead, who take it upon themselves to check up on him. Discovering his beaten and bruised body, they immediately call an ambulance and he is rushed to the emergency room.

RTÉ has warned viewers that tonight's episode of the soap will contain graphic content.
