Coronation Street filming disrupted by fighting

Coronation Street filming was disrupted on location when a fight broke out.  Samia Smith (Maria) and Alison King (Carla) saw a group of builders pull up at a nearby semi-detached house and dig up the driveway in a dispute over an unpaid bill. Following the incident five police cars quickly arrived at the premises in Monton, Salford.

A Corrie source said: "The Corrie girls had to stop and just sat on the pavement with their scripts, watching the action unfold.I don't think they were too pleased to be honest. It was a while before they could start filming again."

The police calmed the situation and advised both sides to settle the matter in a civil court. A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "This was a civil dispute between the home owner and the builders and not a police matter."
