Dramatic Emmerdale Story being filmed on Ilkley Moor!

Nightime filming has been taking place this week for what is said to be a huge Emmerdale story to be aired later in February.  The Yorkshire TV team have been filming dramatic scenes on night shoots on Ilkley Moor until 3am.  Although they have been keeping exact details of the stunts under wraps for now, it is rumoured locally to involve some sort of major mock car crash.  An insider reported "it's a top secret stunt - they've got a stunt crew, fire engines, paramedics on stand-by. They're really big scenes coming up in about six weeks' time which are top secret. It's going to be big." 

Certainly, there have had some very powerful searchlights up there!

Filming has also been reportedly taking place on the moors above Silsden and Riddlesden.

An Emmerdale spokesperson recently confimed "It's a big dramatic storyline that will be on screen in February. It does involve a big stunt so we've had paramedics and fire crews."

Emmerdale continues at 7pm on ITV1.  (Logo and title Yorkshire Television)
