Gory photo of Reeva Steenkamp's bloodied head cut from BBC's Oscar Pistorius documentary

 A GORY photo of the bloodied head of Reeva Steenkamp featured in a controversial documentary will be edited out by the BBC this month.

The South African model, 29, was shot dead by her boyfriend, Paralympian Oscar Pistorius.


The four-part documentary The Trials of Oscar Pistorius uses extensive footage from his original 2014 trial.

One scene shows a picture of the right side of Reeva’s head.

The image accompanies a courtroom exchange where her shooting is compared to a bullet ­hitting a watermelon.

But it is understood the BBC will pixelate it when it airs the programme, first seen on ESPN Player.

The BBC last week apologised for failing to mention Reeva in a trailer released online.

It has since been deleted from all platforms.

Pistorius, 33, is serving 13 years and five months for her killing.
