CUMBERNAULD’S turn in the limelight is over as the hit BBC drama, ‘The Crash’, concluded on Tuesday night.

‘The Crash’ was a two one-hour special series, inspired by real-life events and dramatizes a fatal car crash that devastates a small community. 

Set in a small English town, the series tells the story of the collision from the point of view of the people involved, and is based on extensive interviews and research, although the filming location is far from England.

Areas throughout Cumbernauld and Kilsyth were used as the backdrop for the programme and the most prominent areas of Cumbernauld to stick out were the town’s Village, Greenfaulds and Kilsyth’s Main Street.
