The finale of BBC crime drama Good Cop has been pulled from the TV schedule following the tragic deaths of two female police officers who were shot in Manchester earlier this week.
It is believed that the episode featured scenes of a police woman getting violently attacked.
Not wanting to add further distress to the family and friends of the victims, Contact News reports the BBC released a statement, revealing their reasons for cancelling the episode which was due to air on Thursday.

A spokesperson said: "In light of news events, BBC1 has postponed the final episode of Good Cop due to transmit at 9pm tonight (September 20).
Following the decision to not broadcast the fianle episode, it is unknown as to when the episode will air.
The show, which began three weeks ago, has since received positive reviews, with The Guardian's Stuart Heritage commenting:
"…when Good Cop hits its stride, it's fantastic. The last few minutes of the second episode, when Rocksavage decided to commit his second execution, constituted some of the most gripping television of the year”
