Film crews have been in Pavilion Gardens preparing to film the latest series of ITV’s Grace.

John Simm, who plays DS Roy Grace, and Richie Campbell who plays his colleague DS Glenn Branson, arrived at Pavilion Gardens in Brighton at around 2pm.

Film crews have been in and around Brighton for months as they film season four of the hit ITV crime drama.

They are setting up for a scene today near the stage door entrance where police arrive outside the Brighton Dome theatre.

Crews were setting up sound, lighting and filming equipment, while police cars were being positioned for the scene.

John Simm and Richie Campbell admired paintings from Paul Cary, known as Pauly the Painter, who was busy working on a piece depicting the Royal Pavilion.

Filming took place on the seafront last week as the crimefighting duo went to a crime scene in Madeira Drive.

There has also been filming at Devil’s Dyke since last week.
