Londoners were caught off guard on Sunday morning when a bus was blown up on one of the English capital’s bridges.
The iconic double decker was exploded on Lambeth Bridge for Jackie Chan’s new movie, “The Foreigner,” reports the Independent.
But unsuspecting residents were initially freaked out by the blast, with some believing it was a terrorist attack. Even the National Police Air Service was taken by surprise.
Warning signs had been placed around the bridge and local residents received letters detailing the planned stunt beforehand, Conservative lawmaker Nigel Huddleston told Sky News.
The Port of London Authority said the bridge was closed for the controlled explosion and, reports the BBC, the London Fire Brigade was on standby in case anything went wrong.
“The Foreigner” is a “gritty action based thriller” based on Stephen Leather’s book “The Chinaman,” according to the notice warning issued to residents.
