walking dead censored uk video [This article contains spoilers about the spoiled episode]. The Walking Dead Season 7 started n UK TV on Monday night on Fox UK. However the first episode was cut for violence.

In both the US and the UK versions, Negan beats the heads of Abraham and Glenn into a bloody mess with his personalised barbed-wire baseball bat, Lucille. But the censored UK version is missing a dying promise from the gruesomely injured Glenn and the subsequent scene showing Negan enthusiastically finishing him off.

Fox cited the violence and gruesome injury details as the reason for the cuts soon after the 9pm watershed. A FOX UK spokesperson told Digital Spy:

As Fox Networks Group is regulated by Ofcom, we have a duty of care to ensure all our programmes broadcast adhere to the parameters of the Ofcom Broadcasting code,

However, the scenes were restored for additional late-night broadcasts.
