PUBLISHED: 14:18 20 May 2011


»Thamesmead was transformed into a film set last week as production crews and actors descended on the town to film the third series of the Misfits.

The Bafta-winning television series follows five youngsters on community service who get struck by a flash storm which lands them special powers.

Filming took place next to Southmere Lake, Thamesmead and the show is set in a fictional London borough called Wertham.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said: “It’s great being back in production. I hope everyone will enjoy the new series which will be aired later in the year.

“We will be back filming on location in Thamesmead soon.”
