Rioting in 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 stop via a message on Twitter.
He wrote: "This is a new one on me. Scene incomplete owing to approaching looters. Unbelievable times."
Both lead actors were on set in North London when work was abandoned on the production.
