Television writer Carla Lane, who created shows including 1980s Liverpool sitcom Bread, has died aged 87.

Lane, who was born in Liverpool and later became known for her animal rights activism, also wrote Butterflies and co-wrote The Liver Birds.

Bread, which focused on the extended Boswell family, aired for seven series between 1986 and 1991.

The Liver Birds aired from 1969 to 1979 – and once again in 1996 – while Butterflies aired from 1978 to 1983.

Bread followed the working class Boswell family as they struggled through the city’s high unemployment and poor prospects in the late 1980s.
