Home and Away policeman Colby Thorne is facing a potentially life-changing injury after taking on Leah Patterson-Baker's kidnapper.

Colby (Tim Franklin) was drawn into the conclusion of Leah's storyline in dramatic scenes on Channel 7 in Australia today (February 27).

Viewers have been left horrified after discovering that Leah (Ada Nicodemou) has spent the past few weeks being held captive by a sinister man called Douglas, who terrorised her into carrying out his every instruction.

Leah's ordeal only came to an end when she attacked Douglas and thankfully managed to make an escape, being reunited with Justin Morgan (James Stewart) and ultimately returning home to Summer Bay.

As a traumatised Leah spread the word over her violent kidnapper, Colby and a team of his police colleagues swarmed on the remote house that had become her prison.

There was initially no sign of Douglas, until he suddenly emerged from his hiding place and stabbed Colby in the leg with a knife.

A new Home and Away trailer on air in Australia has suggested that the attack on Colby could have major repercussions.

New footage shows doctor Alex Neilson (Zoe Ventoura) breaking the news to Colby's loved ones that he could potentially lose his leg if further complications develop.

Colby's sister Bella Nixon, best friend Dean Thompson and love interest Mackenzie Booth are all shocked to hear the news, hoping it won't come to that. What will the outcome be for Colby?

Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes in April on Channel 5.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
