Filming has been taking place around Lynton and Lynmouth for new crime thriller Winter Ridge.

The British independent feature film tells the story of a young detective whose wife falls into a coma and, unable to cope with her condition, throws himself into a case where he finds himself on the hunt for a serial killer who preys on the elderly.

It stars Hannah Waddingham (Game of Thrones, Les Misérables), Alan Ford (Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) and Olwen Catherine Kelly (The Autopsy of Jane Doe).

Locations used in the film included the Valley of Rocks at Lynton.

It was overseen by award-winning director Dom Lenoir and producers Nancy Bressolles (Rise of the Krays) and Chris Hardman, who has worked on films such as Avatar, Star Wars and Kingsman.

Dom Lenoir said it was the dramatic nature of the story and the detective genre that first attracted him to the project.

The elements that deal with degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s struck close to home with his own family and experiences.

He added: “I’m hoping that this film will raise an interesting debate on the condition and provide a heart-warming understanding of loneliness.”

Following success at Cannes, the team are looking forward to an early 2018 release.
