Spectators patiently watching from the beach and dunes saw part of the movie set engulfed in flames, while plumes of smoke could also be seen emerging from the castle grounds.

There were also explosions and the sound of stuntbikes in action, although they remained hidden from public view behind the castle walls.

Dozens of extras could also be seen arriving at the castle.
