A STRETCH of Commercial Street will be closed to all traffic on Monday and Tuesday morning as filming for the Shetland crime drama returns to Lerwick.

ITV Shetland advises that, as before, a full road closure has been granted to allow filming the planned scenes in a safe manner.

The closure extends from the junction with Church Road to Stout’s Court, while parking in the immediate area will be restricted except for disabled bays.

Shetland location manner Davie Gardner said: “This closure will, however, remained fully manned and managed at all times to allow for disabled and pedestrian access and for any necessary local access too whenever possible and as deemed necessary.”

Filming times will be between 7am and 8pm on Monday and 7am to 1pm on Tuesday.

Gardner added: “Access to the adjacent Bain’s Beach will also be limited during this time to allow us to film scenes on that too.

“Apologies for any inconvenience of disturbance this will cause, especially to residents in the area, but thanks, as always, for your co-operation with this.”
