A BBC film crew will be filming on Berrow Beach for the next few days - and members of the public are being asked to keep their distance from them.

Sedgemoor District Council is helping the BBC’s Natural History Unit, who will be filming on the beach for the next couple of days,

The crew will be doing test shoots with a full shoot planned for the 'very early mornings' of March 10 to March 12, weather permitting.

"They will have two battery powered lights to illuminate their workspace when required, and all the crew will be wearing head torches," said a Sedgemoor District Council spokesperson.

"They will be lighting a small area of the sea with underwater blue lights. There should be minimal noise, but voices may carry at night.

"The general public are asked to not approach the film crew and to keep a minimum of 4m distance from them. All parties thank the general public for their co-operation in this matter."
