An English rock band has visited Burnley to take part in the Bank of Dave Netflix film.

Def Leppard, who were formed in 1977 in Sheffield, visited the town at the weekend to film a segment for the Netflix movie which will show the life of self-made millionaire from Burnley.

It is not yet known what role Def Leppard will play in the film however, they put out a Tweet confirming their appearance.

The Netflix film is being filmed in David Fishwick's home town of Burnley and surrounding areas, with filming having already begun.

Dave will be portrayed on the screen by Rory Kinnear and the story will focus on him finding his fortune selling vans and minibuses before opening a bank, Burnley Savings & Loans Ltd, with his right-hand man David Henshaw in the town.

Projected to be the next feel-good British movie of the decade, Bank Of Dave will feature other stars including Joel Fry and Phoebe Dynevor, daughter of Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor.
