BBC camera crews have once again been in Suffolk, this time to film an episode of Escape to the Country.

A production crew for the popular BBC show visited the village store in Monks Eleigh earlier this week, with a nearby property seemingly set to appear on the show.

Staff at the volunteer-run village shop were interviewed as part of the programme.

Store volunteer Richard Warner said: "I didn't know anything about it, I volunteer in the shop six hours a week and just saw a camera crew come in. I was told they are filming for Escape to the Country.

"I've heard they were filming a property down the road."

Mr Warner, who has previously appeared on television as a children's singer-songwriter, said he wasn't surprised that the village was chosen to feature on the programme.

"It is a lovely place to live," he added. "We've got our village shop and post office and that real village feel."
