Taking a walk along the Spion Cop this week I came across a small group in high visibility jackets with cameras and other equipment examining the piles of broken concrete that litter the landscape.
The single storage tank and the chimney were getting especial attention. Never being one to be backwards in going forward I approached them and asked what they were up to. It turned out they were a group of independent film makers scouting locations for a film about survivors of a future war living in the rubble of our civilisation.
Their website doesn't give much away yet but maybe Hartlepool will be getting its own block buster? Anyway I was promised an invite to the premier and you know us Councilors, we'd go to the opening of an envelope, especially if we get our photos in the paper and there is a good buffet!
