Shoppers watched with interest yesterday as a crew filming the latest series of ITV detective drama Marcella began work in north Belfast.

The third season of the critically acclaimed series is being filmed in Northern Ireland and is due to hit our screens later this year.

Starring Anna Friel as Marcella, the new season sees her in Belfast as an undercover detective. She has taken on a new identity, Keira, who infiltrates a notorious local crime family.

Anna's co-star is Northern Ireland actress Amanda Burton, who plays Katherine Maguire, matriarch of the crime family.

Anna, whose dad Des was born in Belfast and raised in Donegal, said: "I am loving being so widely welcomed by the great city of Belfast.

"I really can't wait for the viewers to see what this series has in store."
