REAL thieves hit Coronation Street while filming dramatic armed robbery
Corrie stars including Simon Gregson were filming the explosive scenes in Manchester when the alleged raid took place
The Coronation Street set was hit by real thieves while filming a dramatic armed robbery.
Corrie stars, including Simon Gregson, were filming the explosive scenes on location in Bolton when the alleged raid took place.
The thieves targeted a nearby storage unit base just before midday before making off with a generator.
An ITV spokeswoman told the Mirror: “We can confirm a small domestic generator was stolen during a low-level opportunistic theft from the unit base of filming today for Coronation Street whilst the crew were on location in Bolton.
“The programme’s cast and crew weren’t at the unit base at the time. The incident was reported to the police and filming wasn’t affected.”
Five police cars were seen racing to the scene, near Bolton Rugby Union Club.
