A police officer stumbled onto a film set at the Sussex Arms pub

When police received a report of blood-curdling screams from a Tunbridge Wells pub, an officer was dispatched to the scene.

But the bobby who went to investigate in the basement of the Sussex Arms didn't discover a bloodbath - but found himself on the set of a horror movie!

A concerned passerby had called Kent Police to say they had heard a woman screaming inside the closed Nevill Street venue.

The officer discovered the screams were actually from actress Hannah Lowe - tied to a chair in the middle of the cellar surrounded by cast and crew about to undergo the latest take of a blowtorch torture scene.

The officer is heard to say: "Hello, is everything alright? We had a call from a passerby saying there was a woman screaming in the pub."

He was reassured by the crew he had actually stumbled onto a film set and thanked them for their time.
