FILMING for the hit ITV crime drama Grace has continued this morning amid a "beautiful" sunrise on the seafront.

Crews were up bright and early today as they continued to shoot for the show at Brighton's Riddle and Finns restaurant.

Series producer Kiaran Murray-Smith tweeted a photo this morning from the location, commenting on the lovely view.

He said: "A beautiful morning filming #Grace #DeadTomorrow with @SaxonKate in #Brighton @peterjamesuk @itvstudios @JohnSimmSociety."

The picture shows crews gathered in the restaurant with the sun shining through its glass windows.

Grace is an adaption of Sussex author Peter James’s international bestselling book Dead Simple.

The second series of the show, starring John Simm, comes after the huge success of the first.

It will be three 120-minute films - Not Dead Enough, Dead Man’s Footsteps and Dead Tomorrow. Filming today was for the third film Dead Tomorrow.

The film crews have been spotted all over Sussex since the summer and last week they were at Shoreham Port and the Duchess of Cornwall even paid them a visit.

The author recently told The Argus that he had to "fight really hard" to keep the filming for the series in the county, where the books are set.

The new series of Grace is expected to be out next year.
