Child divers are being recruited to appear in the sequel to horror movie The Woman in Black, which starred Daniel Radcliffe.

Crowthorne-based Divecrew is looking for 10 to 13-year-olds to appear as "floating ghosts" in the Hammer film, called Angel of Death.

A school spokesman said filming was taking place underwater in order to capture the "ghostly feel".

Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox star in the follow-up to the 2012 film.

Instructor Martin Weddell said filming would take place in Pinewood Studios and in Oxford.

"Boys and girls must be comfortable in the water," he said.

"Previous drama experience would be a benefit but not essential."

Divecrew is seeking up to 10 children for the production.

Set four decades after The Woman in Black, the sequel will see the haunted Eel Marsh House used by the government to shelter a group of evacuated children during World War II.

It will be directed by Tom Harper.
