A TV show featuring reconstructions of recent crimes will not air as planned this weekend after members of its production team were knocked down while filming for the series in Belfast this week.

Staff from Belfast-based, Stirling Film and Television Productions were injured while at a night shoot at the junction of Falcon Road and Apollo Road, off the Boucher Road on Monday night.

The filming was for upcoming RTÉ 2 series `Young, Dumb and Dangerous', a three-part series about recent cases of murder, gun crime and aggravated burglary, which will also feature interviews and reconstructions.

A total of six people, four men and two women, aged in their late teens and early twenties, were injured when the car ploughed into the group as they filmed.

Two men last night remained in a critical condition in the Royal Victoria Hospital. Another two remained in a stable condition in hospital while two others were discharged.

A man in his twenties who was arrested at the scene following the crash has since been released on bail.

Meanwhile, RTE last night said the `Young, Dumb and Dangerous' series has been postponed.
