FORMER Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay has been in Cornwall filming a new BBC adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn.

Scenes were being shot last week on Holywell Bay beach, with others set to be filmed on Bodmin Moor, said to be the original inspiration for the international bestseller.

The adaptation, by writer and du Maurier enthusiast Emma Frost, will be a three-part drama to be shown in 2014. Other cast members include Matthew McNulty (The Paradise, Room At The Top) as Jem Merlyn; Sean Harris (The Borgias, Southcliffe) as Joss Merlyn; and Joanne Whalley (The Borgias, Gossip Girl) as Aunt Patience.
