Cuffs, made by Tiger Aspect, featured police in action in and around Brighton & Hove and required backdrops for chase scenes plus homes for both sides of the law. Worthing and Shoreham also featured.

“We’ve filmed quite a lot in Brighton,” said Cuffs director Andy Haddock. “In the sun it’s lively, warm, buzzy, hopeful and just a brilliant place to be.

“When it’s cold, windy, the middle of the night, you’re down on the pier and the wind is blowing, it’s quite scary. It had a spooky feeling down at the old pier in the middle of the night. And it’s misty.

“At night it’s like anything can happen.”

Sadly, Cuffs was sadly cancelled after one series ‘to make room for other shows’.
