Later in the day, the TV crew set up their specialist equipment outside King's Lynn police station in St James Street.

The crew had been filming in various locations around West Norfolk, including Hunstanton on Sunday where Mr Morrissey said the weather was not quite as forgiving. 'It wasn't so nice when it was -8C, we were right by the beach and it was absolutely freezing, not very pleasant to work in,' said Line of Duty actor Mr Morrissey.
