Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

BBC drama se­ries Death in Par­adise has sus­pended film­ing in Guade­loupe in the Caribbean be­cause of a red alert is­sued over the dan­gers posed by Hur­ri­cane Irma.

Irma, the most pow­er­ful hur­ri­cane ever recorded over the At­lantic Ocean, has bat­tered var­i­ous is­lands and is thought to have brought dan­ger­ously high winds and rain to Guade­loupe, though it is un­der­stood it is not ex­pected to be hit di­rectly.

The pro­duc­ers Red Planet Pic­tures is­sued a state­ment say­ing: “The Death in Par­adise pro­duc­tion team are in con­stant con­tact with the au­thor­i­ties in Guade­loupe and as soon as the red alert was sig­nalled, film­ing was sus­pended. The safety of the cast and crew re­mains para­mount and when we are given the all- clear, film­ing will recom­mence.”

A pro­duc­tion source added: “We have filmed in Guade­loupe since 2011 and are vig­i­lant about the weather and the dan­gers.”
