The BBC has pulled the final episode of its drama Good Cop after the murders of policewomen Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes.

The drama, starring former Hollyoaks and Luther actor Warren Brown, features scenes of a violent attack on a female police officer.

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

Programme bosses were keen to avoid any further distress to the friends, families and colleagues of Pc Bone, 32, and Pc Hughes, 23, who were murdered in Greater Manchester on Tuesday morning.

The two officers died in a gun and grenade attack after being lured to a house in Hattersley, Tameside, on a "routine" call.

A new transmission date for the Good Cop episode will be confirmed in due course.

Replacing the drama will be a 9pm repeat of comedy series Outnumbered, followed by an edition of Have I Got Old News For You.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
