Jake Webster was the son of Kevin Webster and Alison Webster, whom had died shortly after his birth in June 2000. After his death his mother had a breakdown and snatched newborn Bethany Platt. She handed the baby over and ran in front of a lorry and was killed, leaving Kevin brokenhearted.
- This event appeared to be forgotten fifteen-years later in 2015 when Kevin was met with a similar situation. His girlfriend Jenny Bradley was discovered to have lost a child a couple of years prior, and this led to her having a breakdown and snatching Kevin's son Jack. When Kevin tries to talk Jenny out of hurting herself and Jack, he fails to mention his own event, and some dialogue even has him saying he could never understand what she went through (losing a child) despite being in the same situation himself. Shortly after producer Stuart Blackburn confirmed it was a script mistake and apologised for the error.
