Councillor Mark Rowley, Scottish Borders Council’s Executive Member for Business and Economic Development, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Vera team to the Scottish Borders for filming of an upcoming episode.

“This is the latest production to come to the region, and the Berwickshire coast has been particularly popular with filmmakers in recent times, including of course the last Avengers film Endgame.

“The coverage that these productions give to our beautiful area undoubtedly helps to boost tourism in the area and I’m sure that the Burnmouth community will give the cast and crew a warm welcome.”

Rosie Ellison from Film Edinburgh, which acts as production liaison for the Council, added: “It is testament to the outstanding locations and film-friendly attitude of the Scottish Borders that the filmmakers have chosen to film scenes of an episode of Vera in Burnmouth.”

Scenes from an episode to be filmed in Berwickshire will be broadcast on ITV as part of series 10 of the popular crime drama in 2020.

Made by Silverprint Pictures, part of ITV Studios, the series is produced by Will Nicholson. Earlier this year series nine averaged 7.9million viewers.

Internationally Vera is one of the most successful imported drama titles in Belgium, Denmark, France, Netherlands and Norway, and has been sold to more than 150 territories worldwide by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Will Nicholson said: “We are looking forward to coming north of the border for filming and would like to thank in advance the local community, residents and business for their support in enabling this to happen.”

The series, set in the north east of England, will film in Lower Burnmouth during the week beginning 10 June.
