Vicky McClure has wrapped filming for Trigger Point

The six-part series will see Vicky take centre stage as a bomb disposal officer named Lana Washington, who is on the verge of a crisis after years at the frontline.

The drama is set to be produced by Line of Duty mastermind Jed Mercurio'ss production company, HTM Television, and written by newcomer Daniel Brierley, who he mentored.

The official synopsis from ITV reads: "Reckless and out of control, Lana is ex-military and pushed to breaking point dealing with a series of improvised explosive devices which threaten the capital during a terrorist summer campaign.

"Under extreme pressure and searching for answers, Lana can't help but become suspicious that the bomber is premeditatedly targeting her unit. It's a terrifying thought, but against all odds how does she prove it and discover the bomber's real identity?"
