TV filming halted by looters

Looting on the streets of London has forced filming on BBC One hit Sherlock to be cut short.

A second series of the show - starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman - is being filmed in the city this week.

Co-creator Mark Gatiss announced that work on the show had to be curtailed with a message on Twitter.

He wrote: "This is a new one on me. Scene incomplete owing to approaching looters. Unbelievable times."

Both Cumberbatch and Freeman were on set in north London when work was abandoned on the production.
