The final episode of police drama Good Cop will not be broadcast by the BBC tonight in response to the Manchester shootings this week.

The episode features scenes of violence against a female police officer.

On Tuesday women police officers Fiona Bone, 32, and Nicola Hughes, 23, died in a shooting and grenade attack in Greater Manchester.

Dale Cregan, 29, has been arrested on suspicion of their murders.

Good Cop, which stars Warren Brown, showed a police officer being murdered in the line of duty in its opening episode. The finale will be rescheduled to a later date.

"In light of news events, BBC One has postponed the final episode of Good Cop, due to transmit at 9pm tonight," the BBC said, in a statement.
