EMMERDALE fans are losing patience with David Metcalfe as they brand him an “idiot” for failing to go to police about his son’s abuse from Maya Stepney.
Tonight’s episode saw the shop owner install spyware on Jacob’s laptop in order to catch the paedophile instead of reporting her to the authorities.
Enlisting the help of computer whizz Ryan Stocks, David – played by Matthew Wolfenden – had a program installed on the school boy’s computer under the guise he wanted to check he was doing enough revision for his exams.
While he might think his plan was acceptable fans were outraged as it meant he STILL hadn’t gone to the police to report the abuse.
One wrote: “#Emmerdale David never learns, always trying to be clever. It always backfires and he causes even more distress and pain to others and ends up looking like the idiot he is. Great role model and oarent”
While a fan fumed: “This isn’t about you David, how many more time!! Go to the POLICE #Emmerdale”

Another exasperated viewer added: “David just phone the police #Emmerdale”
However, it later transpired that Jacob did indeed fall into David’s trap as he later found Maya’s passport and emailed her to let her know.
Leyla Harding pleaded with David to contact the police so that the paedophile teacher would be banged up.
But David decided that he would not call the authorities, instead turning vigilante.
