THIS was the scene at Newport's Tredegar House on Friday at filming for the revived BBC TV series Upstairs Downstairs.

The cast of the new series, set to return next year, includes former ER and Dr Who star Alex Kingston as Blanche Mottershead, and is set in the build-up to the Second World War.

This picture was sent in by reader and photography student Michelle Stevens, 32, of Bassaleg, Newport.
