A bystander reports…

There was a person who witnessed this whole happening and he told The Sun:

“Amanda and Keith were shooting inside a supermarket when a commotion kicked off outside.”

The bystander added:

“A bunch of asylum seekers were wandering around out there, and spotted the camera crew filming inside.

“They saw an opportunity, and tried to get into the big production van to hide behind various bits of equipment.”

“As they were pulling away, the driver noticed a stray shoe belonging to a chap hiding underneath their van. They quickly stopped the car, and security got him out and dealt with the matter.”

Both Keith and Amanda were shocked on learning it. But the whole matter was sorted out rather fast with no drama. Lucky!
