Movie stars Sean Bean and Mark Addy were spotted heading to work near Lister Park today as filming started in Bradford for a chilling new drama trilogy.

The three films are being produced for Channel 4 and are based on acclaimed Ossett author David Peace’s Yorkshire Noir novels.

Adaptations of the novels Nineteen Seventy-Four, Nineteen Eighty and Nineteen Eighty-Three are scheduled for transmission next year.

They are set in West Yorkshire against the backdrop of the hunt for Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe.

Sean Bean plays property magnate John Dawson and Mark Addy is John Piggott in the dark drama series.

Yesterday, they were seen filming at a three-storey Victorian town house in Selbourne Mount, Manningham, which backs on to Lister Park.

Other locations in West Yorkshire which have been used for filming, include the Connaught Rooms, a former Masonic lodge in Manningham and areas of Calderdale.
