Filming began this morning just off Mansfield Road, opposite the famous Clipstone Headstocks, and is expected to continue for the rest of the day, with other locations being shot over the coming weeks.

The new ITV drama explores the relationship which develops between a grieving mother and the man she believes murdered her daughter.

Award-winning actress Vicky McClure (Line of Duty, This is England, Broadchurch, Trigger Point) will play the leading role of Stella Tomlinson, whose 14-year-old daughter Maisy is found dead at their family home with the bloodied, hooded figure of Charles Stone standing over her.
