THERE was mystery on the moors as a TV crew began filming.

White Holme Reservoir, above Cragg Vale, was the setting for the latest installment of the DCI Banks series.

Crews were filming scenes where a wheelchair bound victim is found on the moors.

The show, adapted from the novels by Peter Robinson, stars Stephen Tompkinson and Andrea Lowe, and airs on ITV1.

Lorries loaded with equipment were using Ripponden industrial estate as a base with plans to film in several locations near to Ripponden.

Calderdale has been heavily featured in the series with The Wharf pub, Sowerby Bridge, the setting for part of the show’s pilot episode.

They also filmed scenes around Elland last month.

Executive Producer Francis Hopkinson, said: “We’re delighted that so many people enjoyed Stephen Tompkinson as Inspector Banks.

“And with three more novels to work from I’m certain that viewers will look forward to returning to Yorkshire in 2011.”
