Brading Downs will be closed to all traffic today (Thursday) to enable camera crews to continue filming for The Beast Must Die.
As part of an 11-week shoot on the Isle of Wight, Brading Downs Road will be closed between the junction with Ashey Road and Bully’s Hill/The Mall.
Island Echo understands that a police chase scene is to be filmed at the scenic location overlooking Sandown and the East Wight.
Filming is also taking place this week at the former Council offices at The Heights in Sandown, as well as at a private residence on Playstreet Lane in Ryde.
Earlier this week a crime scene shoot took place at Whale Chale car park off Military Road.
Brading Downs Road will be closed from 09:00 until filming concludes later on today.
The Beast Must Die is being produced by New Regency Television and Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Films and tells the story of a grieving mother who infiltrates the life of the man she believes killed her son. It is a BritBox original and an adaption of the 1938 novel by Nicholas Blake – the assumed name of poet Cecil Day-Lewis, father of Daniel Day-Lewis.
Islanders can expect to see the locally-filmed series on Britbox at some point in 2021.
