The production is being funded by Lionsgate, who are a decent sized film company:

Why Eddie Izzard was in North Wales today...but won't be shooting his new movie on historic pier as planned.

Adam Williams, managing director of Tir Prince Leisure Group, which owns the pier, described the situation as a “huge shame”.
“At no point has this been a monetary issue. In fact, we were willing to lose money just to hold the filming."

“But coming up to the latter stages of last week when we were chasing the contract, it became apparent that some of the things they wanted to do, which weren’t disclosed at the start, would need to have been managed by us or not done at all.

Mr M and I had a lovely lunch at Westshore cafe yesterday, he had Haddock Chowder and crusty bread which was delicious and I had GF chocolate cake which was equally delicious and very reasonably priced. While we were there we watched various cast members picking up their lunch from the catering tent and what fantastic outfits and hats the ladies had on. A while later some cars arrived from the 1930/40 era. Sad to hear that filming won't be continuing on the pier and will continue down in South Wales, as I'm sure when the scenery would have been viewed later while watching the film it would have encouraged people to visit the area  :-\

There are rumors, that llandudno scenes could be scrapped due to continuity, as some local actors and extras cannot travel to South Wales....... ?
Most of the portacabins and equipment have gone, just two vehicles left.   what a lost opportunity, especially as it was a local film companies production.

Three swimmers on the West Shore Sandbanks were very lucky today but something needs to be done to prevent this type of thing from happening as the next people may not be so lucky

On two recent visits to Westshore, there were some model powerboat enthusiasts using the lake, nice to see it being used, however the boats in question, some over three feet, powerful and fast, tearing up and down with screaming engines, extremely noisy, and in my opinion unsuitable use of the "boating lake"
An incident not necessarily related, ....one of the men had to wade in and rescue a dazed gull, that was floundering,  if I were a suspicious person, I would conclude the gull had been hit, before my arrival ?

On a similar note I understand the new concessionaires, running the mini golf etc. are considering renting remote controlled boats for use on the lake.

There was a guy who used to have a couple of powered boats on the boating lake but I haven't seen him for years.   One boat was an aircraft carrier ( I think) and was absolutely massive.   He couldn't lift it so they used a winch to bring it out of the water and then it was put on a trailer to take it away.
I can't find a photo of it but this paddle steamer was his other boat

Yes Hugo, I have seen him and another older gent, who has powered model boats, and it is what you would expect on a boating lake, the group I mentioned above are a bit over enthusiastic, and it may take intervention to control, it is leaning towards being "Anti social behavior".

Sounds like the Saga louts are at it again on the boating lake Steve    ;D

The guy with the two large boats was really pleasant when I spoke to him and very enthusiastic about his hobby.   I found this clip of him with that boat I mentioned

Would have been rather neat had he employed tiny jets that could take off and attack other boats :D :D

Oooop's   Don't know how I missed this.............

A beach was sealed off as bomb disposal experts detonated a suspected World War Two device.

The device was discovered by a member of the public who was using magnets to fish for underwater treasure near the Great Orme at around 10am today.
Police and the Army were called in following the find.
Bomb experts then took the device to West Shore in Llandudno where a controlled explosion took place.

An Army spokesman said: "We had a call at 10.35am from North Wales Police and Chester troop attended the scene.
"They thought it could have been a mortar [bomb] but it was actually a smoke mortar which was disposed of in situ.
"Somebody carrying out magnetic fishing picked it up and took it back to their place of work before police were called."

A North Wales Police spokesman said: "We were called at 10.10am this morning after a member of the public reported that they had found a World War Two device near the Great Orme.
"It was then taken to a location on Garage Street and the police were called and we then informed the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team.     ref DP
