A blockbuster film stunt that saw a bus blown up in the middle of central London has left residents raging, after they feared another '7/7'-style attack on the capital.
Many hit out at the lack of warning that the double-decker travelling across Lambeth Bridge which burst into flames was being filmed for new Jackie Chan film 'The Foreigner'.
John Taylor, whose 24-year-old daughter Carrie was killed in the 2005 terror attack on a number 30 bus, says he was told of the shoot in advance but not that an exploding bus would be involved.
He said the lack of communication was "insensitive" and claimed other 7/7 victims' families would have been left upset too.
“You can totally understand why some people would be alarmed seeing this today. Fair enough there is filming that goes on in the city but this seems particularly insensitive," Taylor told the Mirror.
“I know a lot of the families, of other victims and survivors, would be upset by this. Perhaps it wasn’t thought through as much as it should have been.”
7/7 hero Paul Dadge also condemned the Hollywood producers, saying survivors told of similar stunts in the past received no information this time around.
“Would have been VERY easy to inform those involved in 7/7 this was going to happen," he wrote on Twitter.
“Other films have been made that have comparisons (that) could be drawn to 7/7, survivors have ALWAYS been informed ahead. Very insensitive.
"Also hope London Fire Brigade were being paid to provide fire cover for the film."
Dadge and Taylor weren't the only people to recognise hallmarks of the decade-old terror attack, which killed 13 passengers and suicide bomber 18-year-old Hasib Hussain in Tavistock Square.
If you're filming a London bus blowing up and tweeting it out, SAY IT'S FAKE. Some of us lived through 7/7 waiting to see who'd died.— failnaut (@failnaut) February 7, 2016
Others criticised the film crew and council bosses for not giving the general public enough warning.
Hey film types next time you blow up a bus on Lambeth Bridge maybe tell us first so children in park aren't freaked? pic.twitter.com/8Ui6YoE9N0— Sophie Kinsella (@KinsellaSophie) February 7, 2016
Why did London authorities not warn us that the #lambethbridge bus explosion was going to happen? Surely it's best to avoid scaring people?— Gareth Platt (@GazPlatt49) February 7, 2016
Headlines should really read: 'Distasteful publicity stunt sparks panic on Lambeth Bridge'— D. Davidson-Amadi (@TheSplinterCell) February 7, 2016
Despite some measure being taken to provide notice of some sort of stunt in advance.
Don't be concerned if you hear or see explosions on Lambeth Bridge today, filming is taking place including loud special effects.— MPSonthewater (@MPSonthewater) February 7, 2016
Lambeth Bridge shut for filming tomorrow morning. Beware of controlled explosions! pic.twitter.com/TKz8xuatdO— London SE1 (@se1) February 6, 2016
But clearly not enough for the National Police Air Service to be in on the information.
Pilots on the helicopter tweeted photos of Sunday's incident, saying they were "very worried" until they realised it was just a film stunt.
