The appearance of a Hollywood starlet and a high speed police chase in Belfast city centre stopped Saturday afternoon shoppers in their tracks this weekend.

The Line Of Duty crew were out in force filming a dramatic scene from the forthcoming new series on Bedford Street.

Stunt cars and police cars were used for a high speed chase scene along the Belfast city centre street.

Crowds of fans watched from a distance as star Vicky McClure ran from the Central Police station, jumped into a police car and sped off.

The gritty series has become the BBC's best-performing drama in a decade since its premiere in 2012.

The show stars Co Fermanagh actor Adrian Dunbar, as well as Martin Compston and Vicky McClure.

Dunbar leads the anti-corruption police unit AC-12 in the hot programme.

This season will also feature Hollywood star Thandie Newton as the show's main antagonist. Newton, who won a Bafta for her role in the Oscar-winning film Crash, will play DCI Roz Huntley.
