Controversial broadcaster and columnist Katie Hopkins and London-based radio station LBC have agreed that she will leave the station "immediately" in the wake of controversial comments she made following the Manchester bombing.

The radio station said that it and Hopkins have parted company after she called for a "final solution" following the Manchester terrorist attack.

The atrocity left 22 people killed and dozens injured after a suicide bomber detonated a device as concert-goers left an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night.

A former competitor on the BBC show The Apprentice, Hopkins has been a hugely controversial figure in the UK in recent years with many of her twitter comments causing anger and dismay.

LBC and Hopkins have yet to comment any further on her departure from the station

She had hosted a weekly show every Sunday on LBC and continues to pen a column for The Daily Mail. She also finished in second place on Celebrity Big Brother in 2015.

LBC and Hopkins have yet to comment any further on her departure from the station and Hopkins has continued to tweet without any reference to her axing.

Earlier this year, food writer Jack Monroe sued Hopkins over a row over two tweets posted by Hopkins. Monroe won £24,000 in damages, plus £107,000 in legal costs, in a libel action.

Hopkins has made regular appearances on the Late Late Show. Last year, she clashed with host Ryan Tubridy over her views on then President Elect Donald Trump.
