Line of Duty posts first look at explosive van stunt in series 6 chase scene

LINE Of Duty boss Jed Mercurio has teased an explosive van smash stunt to kick-start season six.

The former doctor and writer of the BBC drama took to his Twitter page to post four images of the "van rolls" scene to be featured in the next instalment.

These also showed staff wearing face masks as they directed the action, with initial filming halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Alongside the selection of shots, which also showed a police officer in uniform and a stuntperson in a car, Jed wrote: "LineofDuty6 Huge respect to our stunts team led by Donal O’Farrell featuring ace stunt drivers Steph Carey and Dave Anders.

"It’s easy for me to write “van rolls” – they make it happen.

"Steph doubled for Keeley Hawes in S2 and hardcore LoD fans will recognise Dave from S4 …"




The sneak peek at the new series left Line Of Duty fans hugely excited, with one writing: "Can’t honestly wait for next season of Line of Duty! Thank you for writing such amazing and gripping programme!"

Another posted: "Wow! I hope that LOD returns to Brum again at some point."

A third then concluded: "Now you’ve got me trying to impossibly guess the plot of why the van rolls."

Filming for series six of the police corruption thriller began in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in February 2020, as Martin Compston confirmed on his Instagram page.


Vicky McClure, Compston and Adrian Dunbar were pictured reunited ahead of series six – but this was halted the following month due to the global pandemic.

Creator Jed previously revealed plans for season six filming to finish “before Christmas” in order to guarantee a 2021 release.

He added: “We are working towards a day and if we can get over all the hurdles we will be back filming.

“We'd love to be on air next year, so we really have to make sure we complete our filming before Christmas.”
