Line Of Duty's Adrian Dunbar reveals terrifying moment his car was blown up on family holiday in Jerusalem

ADRIAN Dunbar has revealed he was seconds away from being blown up while on holiday with his family.

The Line of Duty star, 62, told how he had left his car in Israel only for it to exploded seconds later.

Adrian said: “I remember once I was in Jerusalem with the family and we parked at the Nablus Gate and we walked into the city and we heard a bomb go off and we looked into the sky and I just knew it was our car.

“I said to Anna who was with the kids, ‘I am just going to look at something’.

“I went and I knew from where the direction was and we were driving an American budget car and they had identified the car as an American car.

“Thankfully we did not have anything serious in it at the time like our passports.

“But I just dealt with it like, ‘Oh someone has blown up our car’.”

The star, who plays Ted Hastings in the BBC drama, also spoke about living in Northern Ireland during the Troubles and insisted he had not suffered from mental abuse from the horrific incidents.

He told the How To Fail podcast: “When I played in the bands in Northern Ireland and you were travelling late at night it was very dangerous.

“I was in three or four accidents, mostly because people were tired at the wheel.

“But you did see scary things that un-nerved you or you just missed things. When you are late teens there is an air of excitement about all that.

“There is an excitement about living through a time when you have to grasp as much as you can because it may be taken from you.

“You felt so much alive but I don’t think I have anything like PTSD which would come after an incident or a death.”
