Last night I was coming back from Old Street at around 1:30 am and Tower Bridge was closed! We got out of the taxi and thought we could at least walk across the bridge but were informed that there was "filming" going on and couldn't. Does anyone know anything about what filming was going on? We were then forced to take a taxi over London Bridge and saw from there that there were bright lights on the bridge.

Anyone know any details of what was going on?

Would like to find out more! Cheers, Lauren

I think it might be a Bollywood film.

They are also due to be filming overnight tonight and tomorrow.

It is for a film called 0800 Love, which is an indian story piggy backing on the success of Slumdog. Apparently the film ends with the hero having to jump across an opening TB to get the girl! Everyday stuff in SE1!

My friend is the stuntman doing the jump! He's white so there's a lot of make-up. Bizarrely, they spend an hour doing his hair and then put his crash helmet on.

Very funny - I just guffawed out loud in the office!
