Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street will air the outcome of James Bailey and PC Brody’s racism story next week, as James finds out whether his complaint to the police has been upheld.
James (Nathan Graham) and his brother Michael (Ryan Russell) were stopped by Brody (Daniel Jillings) while they were test driving a sports car, with Brody claiming that they had been driving erratically.
James’s complaint that they had been racially profiled was dropped by the police, causing him to appeal, and witness Craig Tinker (Colson Smith) to be re-interviewed after he initially failed to back up James’s account.
Next week, James will receive some positive news as he receives a letter from the police upholding his complaint and proffering an official apology for the way he has been treated.

James’s parents, Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) and Aggie (Lorna Laidlaw), congratulate James on receiving the apology, but he admits to them that he feels flat about his victory and isn’t sure what it actually amounts to.
Aggie tells James that every minor triumph is a positive step taken and that she is very proud of him for his actions.
PC Brody then calls by at Number 3 to apologise to James in person for his behaviour. Brody continues to insist that he is not racist, but James explains to him that he made a judgement about him based on appearance and he urges Brody to do better in future.

Later in the week, James tells Michael that the PR team at Weatherfield County have also apologised to him for the lack of support the club showed over his police complaint. Michael is pleased and he urges James to keep using his platform as a footballer for good.
James decides to call the County PR team and point out the lack of Black managers, suggesting that they could train some of their talented Black players to become managers and lead the way for other clubs to do the same. James is delighted when his idea is well-received by the club.

Aggie and Michael, impressed by James’s hard work, suggest that he should put himself forward for management coaching. When James returns home from the club, he is upbeat and reveals that they have agreed to let him work on his coaching badges whilst continuing as a player for County.
James’s family are thrilled for him, pleased that he will be able to make a real difference.
