It is thought they were filming the new BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders, starring Hollywood star John Malkovich as Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and Rupert Grint - best known for playing Ron Weasley in Harry Potter - as Inspector Crome.

The 1930s-set BBC One drama is being filmed across Yorkshire this summer. Leeds Town Hall, City Varieties, St John’s Square in Wakefield, and Ripon Spa Baths have all been used as the backdrop for scenes so far.

Malkovich was spotted in character during the Wakefield shoot earlier this month.
