The new drama will focus on counter terrorism policing and the extraordinary work of the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad.

Trigger Point will see a terrorist campaign threaten the capital over the summer with the bomb disposal operatives, known as ‘Expos’, at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before fatalities escalate.
