The Southwark film unit sent us this message after the filming was completed:

I just wanted to send a massive thank you to everyone for your help with setting up this shoot. I know it was a big ask (especially during lockdown) and it would never have happened without all of your cooperation and the huge amount of patience and work everyone had in terms of getting it all set up.
