BBC One has shared an explosive new trailer for Line of Duty ahead of its return on 21 March.

The short clip has given fans a brief look at what to expect from Ted Hastings' anti-corruption unit as the team are given task of looking into whether a murder case is being deliberately impeded.

Investigating the murder of senior police officer Gail Vella, who is played by Andi Osho, AC-12 have to discover whether there are "bent coppers" that contributed to Gail's death remaining unsolved.

Superintendent Ted, who is played by Adrian Dunbar, Detective Inspector Kate Fleming, portrayed by Vicky McClure, and Chief Inspector Steve Arnott, played by Martin Compston, focus their attention on Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, who is the "senior investigating officer of an unsolved murder, whose unconventional conduct raises suspicions at AC-12."

Ted continues: "It will be our job to detect whether police corruption has contributed to this murder remaining unsolved."

Steve then jumps in to explain that the whole "line of inquiry has been deliberately suppressed to protect organised crime.
