A man will go on trial later this year charged with the attempted murder of an undercover police officer in east London.

The officer, in his 40s, was attacked in an alleyway in Bow last November.

Andrew Beadie, 20, of Basildon, Essex, will go on trial in May charged with attempted murder, having an offensive weapon and assault by beating.

Prosecutors have dropped all charges against Janine Morris, of Bow, who had been charged with attempted murder.

Mr Beadie will enter a plea in April before a trial at the Old Bailey on 15 May.

The defendant, who appeared by video link from Belmarsh prison, was remanded in custody.
