Filmmakers behind Channel 4’s Immigration Street say they cut short filming in Southampton after threats and attacks on crew

THE people behind a controversial documentary being filmed in a Southampton community say they cut short filming after “criminal gangs” threatened to throw acid over the TV crew.

Bosses at Love Productions said production workers also had rocks and stones thrown at them and their tyres slashed as they tried to film in Derby Road for the new ‘Immigration Street’ series for Channel 4.

Kieran Smith, the creative director of the programme also revealed that one person who has agreed to take part in the show – which will be aired in coming weeks – was also badly beaten up and needed hospital treatment for his injuries.

That all sounds very multicultural.
