Orange signs labelled NEWT signal the arrival of Dennis Waterman

Mysterious orange signs, labelled NEWT, which sprung up on lamp posts overnight have been explained by a BBC film crew.

Cameramen have descended upon Epping Forest to film an episode of New Tricks, the popular BBC programme which sees a team of ex police officers solving old crimes.

Director Tom Mullens, says that actor Dennis Waterman will be filmed visiting the forest later today, as his character attempts to solve a mystery.

He said: “We are filming in the centre of the forest where there is a nice little pond.

“The writer of the episode set it in Epping Forest.

“The story is of a guy who likes running and he runs through the forest.”

The car park of Miller and Carter Steak House on the Wake Arms Roundabout has been filled with trailers and dozens of crew members, although the director says that it is just for today.

Funny how they can stick signs up anywhere they like when the poor old Fencer gets a fine for trying to work.

Even if the BBC are fined the Taxpayer picks up the Tab. One Rule for the Elite and another for Joe Public.

As usual you don't rely on actual facts for your comments.

They would get all the right permissions from the relevant authorities to do filming there first, and these film crews are very good at cleaning up before they leave anywhere. You wouldn't even know they've been there.

And if anyone would get fined, which is highly unlikely, it would be the production company Wall to Wall. Nothing to do with the BBC.
