  Alnwick and Durham miss out on Potter 3
Updated 22 February 2003, 15.22

Alnwick Castle and Durham Cathedral will not be used in filming the third Harry Potter movie, the Prisoner of Azkaban.

That decision could cost tourism in the North East of England loads of money, because the link with Harry Potter has seen people flocking there.

The Castle and Cathedral are both used to represent Hogwarts in the first two films, but the film crew have decided that they don't need to go there this year.


They already have loads of footage from previous visits, so may use special effects to add in the actors for the third film.

Paul Mingard, a man in charge of getting films made in the North East, said the film crew spent 500,000 alone on hotels in the area when making Chamber of Secrets.

Some stuff will be filmed outside

Filming on the Prisoner of Azkaban starts on Monday at Leavesden Studios in Watford, with the outdoor shots being filmed later in Glencoe in Scotland.
