A disturbing Neighbours storyline in which a Chinese family on Ramsay Street was charged with eating a dog has resurfaced in footage.
Julie Martin, Jim Robinson’s daughter (played by Julie Mullins), accuses the Lim family of eating her missing dog in the unusual film, which has gathered popularity on YouTube since the series finale last week.
Julie remarks, “That kind of stuff, Mrs. Lim, could be acceptable in your nation, but in Australia we consider it barbarous.”

The fictitious Melbourne, Victoria neighbourhood of Erinsborough, located on Ramsay Street, will now be razed, it has been revealed.
‘We are advised by Fremantle Media that the sets will be destroyed and that the area will be utilised for their next project, whatever that may be,’ said Terry Smit of Go West, the group in charge of organising the official Neighbours tour, to the Daily Star.
The tour will end because there is nothing left for us to tour due to the sets being disassembled, Mr. Smit stated.
Although Ramsay Street is a genuine street where regular people live, Erinsborough is a made-up town, according to the tour’s website.
