Norwich city centre standstill for Alan Partridge filming

Perhaps the slowest car chase in movie history was played out through the streets of Norwich as part of the latest filming for the new Alan Partridge movie.

The city played host to its most famous fictional son and his creator Steve Coogan during Thursday while he was filming on location outside City Hall.

Norwich's most famous fictional son makes a return to the city today. The Forum and nearby City Hall will be providing the backdrop for filming of a new movie, featuring Steve Coogan's creation Alan Partridge.

Earlier this week, Cromer Pier was closed off to the public as film crews took over for the day.
