FILM crews have closed a street in Orford to begin filming a new series of Sky’s comedy drama Brassic.

Trucks full of equipment line Tomlinson Avenue this morning, Tuesday.

Meanwhile traffic control signs and patrols have been assigned to man the street while filming is carried out throughout the morning – with residents notified filming would be underway from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

Camera crews are visible on the street and members of the Sky production team are spread across both sides of the road as filming begins for the popular comedy series, based in the fictional northern town of Hawley.

We are yet to spot the famous faces from the cast which include Corrie star Michelle Keegan and Misfits actor Joe Gilgun who play two of the main characters in the series, Erin Croft and Vinnie O’Neill.

Other roads around the area are currently not in use for residents who would usually park on the roads, these include Roscoe Avenue, Norbury Avenue.

It is also rumoured that filming is taking place in another location on Long Lane.

And film crews were also sighted at Orford Park yesterday filming other scenes for the sixth series of the show.

In a letter sent to residents, Sky’s production team thanked residents for their understand and patience whilst filming is carried out.

“We thank you in advance for your support and cooperation with our filming, and our apologies for any inconvenience our filming may cause,” they said.
