A BELOVED Channel 4 drama has been axed after five series - leaving fans devastated. The network confirmed today that Ackley Bridge would not be renewed for a sixth series following a report by website TV Zone.

In a statement, Channel 4 said: "We’re immensely proud of Ackley Bridge, which over the last five series has received praise for the way in which it has tackled real-life situations and issues in an irreverent and insightful way. "However, Channel 4 has a responsibility to continuously look for new and innovative ideas and we have made the difficult decision to not greenlight another series. "We’d like to thank The Forge, the wonderful cast and all those involved in the show’s success over the years and we look forward to working with them again on future projects." Ackley Bridge followed the lives of teachers and pupils at a multi-cultural school and starred the likes of Jo Joyner, Robert James Collier and Sunetra Sarker.
