Effra pub and Kellett Road on the telly

You may have noticed that temporary parking restrictions were in place in Kellett Road near the Effra pub this week for filming. An intrepid Effrablog reporter set off to find out more (ie we asked a man in a high vis vest) and discovered that it was to film a scene in a forthcoming 1970s-retro TV cop series with working title “The life of crime”. Apparently its mainly set in Ireland. You heard it here first.
