Extras and film crews descended on the centre of Haworth to produce a television advertisement due to be screened this summer.

The team from Gate Films was busy on Main Street last yesterday morning for a Vauxhall advert which will be shown during the Football World Cup.

Main Street trader Nikki Carroll said she and her neighbours were informed earlier in the week that filming would be taking place.

“It’s been quite spectacular and interesting to watch,” she added. “They’ve brought in 50 extras to play the part of proud fans cheering on the England team.

“The letter we received said that they had chosen Haworth for the filming to represent an idyllic, English country village.”
