Film buffs are flocking to Durham for a spot of “Avenger hunting” as filming continues on the new Hollywood blockbuster.

Fans have been gathering outside the Cathedral for more than a week in the hope of glimpsing one of the A-list cast members.

While some people have been lucky enough to spot Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Avengers series, in the city, there was less joy for those on Palace Green and outside the Cathedral entrance on Thursday.
