Corrie storyline changed for Stone Roses fan who died

Coronation Street bosses have altered a storyline after it was deemed too similar to the death of Stone Roses fan Christopher Brahney.

Scenes filmed of a body found in a canal have been removed from Friday's Corrie episode out of respect for his family.

An ITV spokesman told ITV News: "The producers of Coronation Street have taken the decision to remove references in this Friday's show, which although scripted and filmed weeks ago, bore some similarities to the manner in which Christopher Brahney’s body was found. Like many others, we were extremely saddened by the news of his death, and our thoughts and condolences are with his family."
