A drone company from Wetherby secured a lucrative deal to film footage of the new series of BBC’s motoring show Top Gear.

Aerialrepublic.com was commissioned to capture hours of aerial footage featuring new co-host Matt LeBlanc.

It was asked by production company Extreme Facilities to capture footage of le Blanc riding a sand buggy through a remote desert location in Morocco. The footage was broadcast on May 29, when the first episode of the new season aired.

The company was also commissioned to film content in Snowdonia National Park in Wales in 2015.
