Londoners aren’t too happy about the bus explosion staged for a Jackie Chan film


A double decker bus dramatically explodes in the heart of London – but it is all for a movie.

Londoners were left confused as they saw the bus go up in flames as it drove along Lambeth Bridge in central London on Sunday.

In a notice warning residents about it, film producers described the film as a “gritty action thriller”.

It is directed by Martin Campbell, who was behind James Bond films Casino Royale and GoldenEye.

Signs had been put in place alerting residents the bridge would be closed between the hours of 8am and 12pm, with Transport for London also confirming the closure “due to filming”.


The notice, posted on Twitter, stated: “The explosion is controlled and operated by our special effects team.”
It added: “Every precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of the people in the area.”
