Filming for Dwayne Johnson's Fighting With My Family is currently underway in Norwich.

Stephen Merchant and his production crew have taken over the city centre as scenes for the feature film are shot.

Written and directed by Merchant, Fighting With My Family will focus on the Knight family of wrestlers and their daughter Paige's journey to WWE fame.

Actress Florence Pugh, who has taken on the role of Paige, was filming some of her final scenes on Monday, along Gentleman's Walk.
