A Bolton estate is enjoying a touch of Hollywood glamour - with A-listers and crews decending on their street and the into the nearby local.

Filming for new Netflix show 'Toxic Town' is currently taking place at The Mosley Arms in Breightmet, with crew vehicles parked nearby and fake signage on the outside of the pub.

The show is based on the real-life story of the Corby Poisonings, one of the UK’s biggest environmental scandals.

A story about community, it focuses on three mothers who take on a David and Goliath fight for justice.

Although set in the Northamptonshire town, much of the show is being filmed in the North West, with Hollywood film star Robert Carlyle and former Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker being spotted in Bolton town centre for filming this week.

Now, crews have moved from Le Mans Crescent to the pub on Red Lane. 

The pub has been renamed the'Rockingham Arms' for the drama.

Paul Longmire of Joseph Holt Brewery, which owns the pub, said: "We are thrilled to have had our pub The Mosley Arms become part of what we are sure will be another fantastic show on Netflix.

"Since filming at the pub began on Tuesday many of our customers and residents have been intrigued and excited to have had their local chosen as the setting for a new drama show.

"It's slightly surreal to have huge stars such as Jodie Whittaker, Rory Kinnear and Robert Carlyle walk in and around our pub during the filming on Toxic Town.

"Its a real honour to have the pub, which we believe will be featured heavily in the upcoming show, as a location for all the cast and crew involved."

He added: "We have seen the filming taking place in Bolton Town centre, but for Breightmet and in particular our pub that sits at the heart of this community, to be involved too is brilliant.

"We cannot wait to see the show when it airs on Netflix and we are even thinking of holding a party evening to watch the episodes in the place where it was filmed."

A statement on the website of Red Lane Primary School, which sits opposite the pub, says: "On the 13th, 14th and 15th Septemeber, a film crew will be in town filmig a series for Netflix called Toxic Town.
