Fans of the fictional radio and television presenter Alan Partridge braved the cold today to catch a glimpse of him on Cromer Pier.

Filming of the long-awaited Alan Partridge movie started yesterday and will finish in Cromer tomorrow.

The 140-strong cast and crew are due to continue filming in Sheringham town centre on Wednesday and Norwich Market Place on Thursday and Friday.

Some Norfolk residents have been used as extras, as well as extras from London who mainly play policemen.

A Radio Norwich van outside the Hotel de Paris was flanked by emergency vehicles - all part of the props for the film.
