A series of road closures have been announced for the filming of The Bay TV drama in Morecambe.

The road will be closed from its junction with Regent Road to its junction with Central Drive from 9pm on July 13 to 2am on July 14.

Marine Road Central will be closed from Northumberland Street to Queen Street from 10pm on Thursday July 14 to 2am on Friday July 15.
