The Free Press was informed by a resident yesterday, who wished to remain anonymous, that filming was taking place at the beauty spot in the Clwydian Range, which lies on the boundary between Denbighshire and Flintshire.

The resident told the Free Press: "I have [this afternoon] just been for a walk up Moel Famau, from the Ruthin end, by Llanbedr-Dyffryn-Clwyd, and the car park where people park is absolutely full. There is massive television trucks and lorries and four wheel drives and private security."

The resident made some enquiries and was informed filming for a BBC2 drama was taking place.
