CAMERAS filming a brand new BBC detective series have been spotted in Bradford.

They were seen rolling in City Hall on Wednesday afternoon for the drama Virdee - which is based on Bradfordian AA Dhand’s thrilling crime novels.

The BBC revealed it had commissioned Virdee as a six-part drama series last August.

Dhand was raised in Bradford and spent his youth observing the city and its different communities from behind the counter of a small convenience store. 

After qualifying as a pharmacist, he worked in London and travelled extensively before returning to Bradford, where he started his own pharmacy business

He wrote the Virdee series whilst running the pharmacy.

The show follows Detective Virdee, who was disowned by his Sikh family for marrying Saima, who is Muslim. 

With his personal life in chaos, he must hunt down a killer targeting the Asian community.

When the murderer kidnaps a local MP’s daughter in Bradford and holds the entire city to ransom, Harry realises that he is going to need the help of his brother-in-law Riaz, a drugs kingpin who runs the largest cartel in the county.
