A purple, triple-decker bus pulled up under the viaduct on Stoney Street on Saturday; apparently en-route to 'Nothing Under Water'. It may have looked like a radical solution for Congestion Charging, but was in fact Harry Potter's Knight Bus.
The Market didn't look significantly different. A few extra stalls were brought in and a cafe on Stoney Street was temporarily turned into a 'Third Hand Book Emporium'. Otherwise, the location should look eerily familiar to locals when the film hits cinema screens.
A spokesperson wouldn't confirm if the crew will be returning to the Market for further filming. But she did say that we will have to wait until 2004 to see the finished film.
