Stephen Merchant and his production crew have taken over Gentleman's Walk outside Norwich Market as scenes for the film on a wrestling star from Norwich are shot.

Sections of street around the market are cordoned off, but signs are in place which proclaim business is open as usual.

Written and directed by Merchant, the film will shine a spotlight on the Knight family of wrestlers and their daughter Paige's journey to become a WWE Champion.

Actress Florence Pugh, who has been cast as Paige (real name Saraya-Jade Bevis), is in the fine city to shoot her final scenes for the movie.
