    Earlier today, the crews from Top Gear and from the forthcoming The Sweeney movie descended on a road in Queenborough on the Isle Of Sheppey to film some car chase scenes.

    Here are a selection of the 400 photos I took, including an appearance from Jeremy Clarkson himself!

    Thanks.

    Sweeney movie? Well, we'll just have to hope they know what they're doing. Maybe they're hoping to cash in on the vogue for retro cop dramas inspired by Life on Mars & Ashes to Ashes. I wonder where they'll get the appropriate props from, as I wouldn't have thought that they'd find many owners willing to have their Jags and Mk 1 Granadas thrown about like they did in the old days.

    flickr does seem to have been doing that a bit lately, but if it's any consolation it works ok for me.

    Alas it's not going to be set in the 70s.... the only connection to anything remotely Sweeneyesque is in the characters names, Regan is played by Ray Winston and Carter is played by Ben Drew / aka 'Plan B'. Whover the **** he is!

    It doesn't bode well I'm afraid.

    I'd have preferred Philip Glennister to Ray Winston
