ITV drama about Lord Lucan filming at Beachy Head

A drama about the mysterious disappearance of Lord Lucan was filmed at Beachy Head this week.

The production will star Rory Kinnear as Lord Lucan and Catherine McCormack as Veronica.

The production is directed by Adrian Shergold.

Richard John Bingham was the 7th Earl of Lucan but was known as Lord Lucan.

He disappeared without trace in November 1974 after the family’s nanny was found dead at the home of his estranged wife in London that year.

His car was found some time later soaked in blood in Newhaven and he was accused of being a murderer.

Lord Lucan was declared dead by the High Court in 1999.

However there have been reported sightings of him in Australia and South Africa.

The ITV drama is based on a book The Gamblers by John Pearson.

Filming for the drama began last month.

It will also star Christopher Ecclestone.
