Virgin Media explains why The Guards: Inside The K wasn't on last night

People were disappointed the show wasn't on our screens.

The Guards: Inside The K has proven to be a massive hit with Irish viewers over the past few weeks.

The five-part series has gained unprecedented access to the work carried out by An Garda Síochána in the K District, Ireland’s busiest policing district which includes Blanchardstown, Finglas and Cabra in Dublin.

The show airs on Wednesday nights on Virgin Media One, but viewers were disappointed to discover that it wasn't on their screens this week.

Virgin Media said it had decided to postpone the airing of this episode until a later date.

“Due to the nature of content in [Wednesday's] scheduled episode of The Guards: Inside The K which deals with themes of mental health and suicide this programme will be postponed to a later date," Virgin Media said in response to a query from JOE.

The show will return next Wednesday (25 March) in its usual slot of 9pm.
