'The Interceptor' filming in Bartholomew Street

The Interceptor is a new BBC television drama by Tony Saint about a top secret surveillance team tasked with tracking down some of Britain's most dangerous criminals.

The cast includes David Gyasi, Jo Joyner, Trevor Eve, Robert Lonsdale, Ewan Stewart, Lorraine Ashbourne, Anna Skellern, Gary Beadle and Lee Boardman.

During Monday's filming the playground of St Saviour's and St Olave's School was used as a base for production vehicles.

Other locations used for The Interceptor include Britannia House in Trinity Street – which became Bermondsey Lane Police Station during filming in March – and Waterloo Station.
