A new BBC crime drama was being filmed in Croydon yesterday.

Crews were shooting scenes for The Interceptor, which sees police hunt down Britain's most dangerous criminals, in the town centre.

In one of the scenes, speeding cars race down Fell Road and pull up outside Croydon Council's headquarters in Bernard Weatherill House.

The eight-part series, written by Tony Saint and starring O-T Fagbenle, is scheduled to air on BBC One later this year.
