The hosts and film crew from ITV show Toonattik were shooting a scene for “Dork Hunters” when they were detained by police in London under the Terrorism Act. They were wearing utility belts with “spangly” hairdryers and hairbrushes and flak jackets.
We have been following with growing concern as our English cousins have been arresting people for such acts as filming Fish and Chips shacks, here.
One of the hosts seemed to suggest that the Dork Hunters were successful in their quest. He described the scene:”We were stopped, not arrested, but they had to say ‘we are holding you under the Anti-Terrorism Act because you’re running around in flak jackets and a utility belt’, and I said ‘and please put spangly blue hairdryer’ and he was, like, ‘all right’.” They were not ultimately arrested.
He is lucky that they did not find their van and blow it up, here.
