A BBC film crew has rolled into Cromer to shoot a Christmas-themed drama.
The crew filmed at a house in Oliver Court off Cromwell Road today (Tuesday, October 2) before further filming takes place on Cromer's promenade and pier tomorrow and on Thursday.
Workers built an archway structure halfway down the pier this morning, which was used to erect a large Christmas tree, which is now in place.
Although the details of the production are being kept under wraps, earlier in September the Norfolk Film Company advertised for extras aged from 'five to 70, all genders and ethnicities' for the Cromer shoot.
A public notice from North Norfolk District Council said: 'Please note that Melbourne Slope and the promenade will be closed to traffic on Wednesday, October 3 while filming takes place. Disabled parking will be suspended during this time.
