When we filmed Gatwick Gangsters, we had to get a ‘P’ number from the Police.
This was to make them aware we were running around the streets with Guns and when the Public phone it they know it is Gatwick Gangsters!
On the film set of the 'hijack of a van' they sent a police car to watch over us as we had shot guns, plus there was a real robbery in Oxford Street, London with a film crew pretending to be filming, but really, they were real life robbers! In the shot you can see the unmarked police car.
The policeman said, “It was a first when two actors walked up to him with shot guns to make sure he was happy that they were unloaded!”.
