Riots halt filming of 'Sherlock'

The unrest in London has caused filming to be postponed.

A second series of the TV show, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, is being shot in the city this week but the trouble in the streets caused the unit to be evacuated.

Co-creator Mark Gatiss told fans on twitter that some scenes were unable to be filmed.

"This is a new one on me. Scene incomplete owing to approaching looters. Unbelievable times. "
