Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar were back on the beat as Line Of Duty continued filming in Belfast.

Filming on the sixth series of the hit show was halted earlier this year amid the coronavirus pandemic but resumed in September with strict guidelines to ensure the new episodes are produced as safely as possible.

The trio, who play DI Kate Fleming, DS Steve Arnott and Superintendent Ted Hastings respectively, could be seen filming on Talbot Street in the Cathedral Quarter of the city.

In the scene, Hastings arrived at the Decker Avenue police station in the passenger seat of a car, where he was greeted outside by his colleagues.

The trio were photographed sipping coffee and chatting in between takes, while the crew around them wore face coverings.

The next instalment of the police thriller will feature a brand new case for anti-corruption unit AC-12, which is investigating DCI Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald), the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case.
