The cameras are rolling again on the second series of a television programme which follows the work of traffic officers across Cleveland and Durham.

Filming has begun with Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit (CDSOU) after another two series of the Channel 5 programme Police Interceptors was agreed.

Officers from the unit are currently being shadowed by the film crew whilst on duty on the streets of Cleveland and Durham.

Ten episodes of the programme began airing on Channel 5 in October.

Head of the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, Mark Thornton, said: “The first series was generally well received by the public and we have had lots of supportive messages from them.

"Throughout the show we have been able to show the wide variety of incidents that our officers in the unit have to deal with, including collisions, drunk drivers, drugs seizures and

more.

“We’re pleased to be working with Raw Cut and Channel 5 again.

"The series has highlighted the good relationship that we have between the police and public in the North East, in both our enforcement activity and at the scenes of incidents.”

The second series is due to air in 2016.
