Line of Duty star Vicky McClure and creator Jed Mercurio are teaming up for a six-part bomb disposal thriller for ITV, Trigger Point.

Trigger Point follows London's Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad, with McClure playing "reckless and out of control" officer Lana Washington. 

When a series of improvised explosive devices go off in the city, she becomes suspicious that the bomber is targeting her unit - but how does she prove it?

Mercurio will serve as executive producer on Trigger Point through his company, HTM Television. The series has been written by newcomer Daniel Brierley.

McClure said she is "so grateful to be working with Jed again".

"I'm really looking forward to creating a strong, bright and troubled character in Lana Washington," she continued. 

"Daniel Brierley has produced a brilliant and nail-biting script. I can't wait to get started later this year."

Mercurio promised that "Daniel Brierley's breathless thriller that will have viewers on the edge of their seats".

It was announced earlier this week that the cameras have started rolling on the new series of Line of Duty.
