Watford will feature on the big screen next month when a new film with an international cast is released.

Several scenes in Provoked were shot in Whippendell Electrical in Sydney Road, Watford.

The film features Miranda Richardson, Naveen Andrews and Robbie Coltrane.

It tells the true story of an Asian woman who overturned the British judicial system and transformed the meaning of "provocation" in the case of physically abused women, winning justice for women subjected to domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse.

The film, based on Ahluwalia's autobiography Circle of Light by Rahila Gupta, follows her lonely struggle in an abusive 10-year marriage, her retaliation through the murder of her violent husband and the efforts of women activists Southall Black Sisters to bring her justice.

The film will be released nationwide on Friday, April 6
