Stunning footage shows what is believed to be the next Lloyds Bank advert being filmed on a Northumberland beach

Footage captured by a walker shows a black horse running through the water at Beadnell Bay towards other horses while being filmed by a camera crew earlier this week. It was taken at 7.30am on Friday, August 21, and shows the horse, which symbolises the Lloyds logo, running through the North Sea just as the sun rises. A truck with a camera attached to it can be seen driving alongside the galloping horse to capture the footage on Beadnell Bay beach.

She commented: “We have a cottage in Newton so we noticed a little bit more activity on the beach than usually on Thursday night but didn’t think much of it.

“Then on our Friday morning dog walk we arrived at the beach just as they were bringing out the horses so we went higher in the dunes to watch. “Because the conditions in terms of the tide and the light from the sun were perfect, they started filming there and then. It was breathtaking.

“It was such a powerful thing to watch, it was beautiful to see these majestic beasts galloping through the water. It really moved me.” Footage of the black horses was also captured by 34-year-old Rachel Gargett-Gillens, from West Auckland, when she arrived at the beach on Thursday evening.

Rachel said: “We were sat on the beach about to have a BBQ and waiting for my parents to arrive when all of a sudden these horses turned up. “We felt incredibly lucky to see it and it is nice to see that one of our nicest beaches has been picked for the location.” Lloyds Bank, which has filmed similar adverts in the past, has been contacted for comment.
