HELENSBURGH and Lomond is not short of real-life hero submariners – but now a call has gone out to people in the area who would like to be part of a fictional submarine and navy crew in a new TV drama.

Film and TV extras agency Uni-versal Extras is looking for men and women to join the supporting cast of a new military crime drama, to be filmed in February and March, as the "core submarine crew".

You need to be aged between 16 and 50, and must have easy access to the Dumbarton area, where it’s understood that filming will take place.
