Several Belfast city streets were closed down yesterday to film a high-speed crash scene for Line of Duty.

Cameras shot the dramatic footage involving multiple high-end vehicles and an overturned van.

Roads around Clarendon Dock, including Corporation Street, were closed as the footage was captured.

Filming for the BBC crime drama resumed earlier this month after a five-month hiatus caused by the coronavirus lockdown.

Following the return to action, a number of the show’s famous faces, including Adrian Dunbar, Martin Compston and Vicky McClure, were spotted in and around Belfast.

Line of Duty creator and writer Jed Mercurio also took to Twitter to tell fans that “the gaffer” — Superintendent Ted Hastings, played by Dunbar — had “finally floated up the Lagan” to restart work on the show.

He also shared photographs of filming, with crew members wearing masks and making sure to socially distance.
