Film crews from Warner Bros, who are filming The Good Liar, have been using Barry’s Meat Market in Woodgrange Road, Forest Gate as a set - although the name of the butcher’s had been changed to Rastakovski.

Dame Helen wasn’t seen on set - but Sir Ian and Downtown Abbey star Jim Carter were both photographed on the set.

The film is set to be released 2019.
