Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond were in pursuit of fish and chips as they brought their new show The Grand Tour to the seaside town of Whitby.

The trio are filming the UK leg of their Amazon motoring show on the sea front in North Yorkshire following stints in South Africa and California and ahead of stops in Finland and the Netherlands.

They were spotted shooting scenes inside their distinctive black travelling tent, emblazoned with the show's orange logo, while a stuntman fell from a bridge.

Ahead of filming, May tweeted: "Fancy cod 'n' chips @RichardHammond @JeremyClarkson?" to which Clarkson replied: "@MrJamesMay I'm up for that. Whitby?"

A new trailer for the highly anticipated show was released last week in which Clarkson, May and Hammond are billed as three friends on an "adventure".

It features the trio in exotic locations, with the ex-Top Gear presenters joking that they have only had a "minor fire" when a stunt goes wrong.

The stars are seen speeding around race tracks, flying over the desert - and trying but failing to entice a camel up a ramp.

:: The first episode of The Grand Tour launches on November 18 on Amazon Prime Video.
