LINE OF Duty star, Vicky McClure was part of a film crew in Harlow shooting dramatic funeral scenes for her new ITV drama Trigger Point.
The actress, 38, who has reunited with Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio for the series, recorded the scenes outside St Paul’s Church in Harlow.
Vicky is set to play ex-military bomb disposal expert Lana Washington who is pushed to her breaking point after discovering a series of improvised explosive devices threatening London during a terrorist campaign reports the Daily Mail.
During the scenes being filmed at the church next to the Harlow Playhouse, it appeared that Vicky’s character Lana and her colleagues were bidding farewell to one of their own, as a coffin covered with the Union Flag was carried into a hearse.
The team sent the car on its way before heading back into the church, hinting that perhaps the London terrorist plot hits them close to home.
The actress is starring in Trigger Point, which is produced by Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio’s HTM Television, alongside Adrian Lester, who will play fellow bomb disposal operative Joel Nutkins.
The upcoming series focuses on counter terrorism policing and the extraordinary work of the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad.
Trigger Point will see a terrorist campaign threaten the capital over the summer with the bomb disposal operatives, known as ‘Expos’, at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before fatalities escalate.
Vicky’s character Lana and Adrian’s Joel are both ex-military with the two close friends after serving together in Afghanistan.
Vicky also took to her Twitter to share the news as she shared a collection of photos from the show.
She tweeted: ‘Meet Lana Washington & Joel Nutkins! We’re off to an explosive start!! Can’t wait to reveal more as we go along…we’ve got an incredible cast!!
‘And the crew are creating absolute gold! Trigger Point!! @ITV @HTMTelevision @AdrianLester #triggerpoint.’
