Terrorist scare on set of Goblet of Fire
[from Contact Music]
Security has been stepped up on the set of the new Harry Potter movie after the studio where it is being shot received a chilling terror threat.
Leavesden Studio near London answered the menacing phone call last Friday (13AUG04), which warned of a brutal attack on the film's young stars. And insiders fear Al-Qaeda - the terrorist network responsible for the September 11 attacks - are behind the threat.
A studio source says, "The caller apparently said, 'It's payback time... this is for all you've done to our women and kids.'
"The film is being made by American company Warner Bros. so it sounds like it could have an Iraq or Al-Qaeda connection."
Police and dog handlers have been drafted in to patrol the perimeter fence and the number of security guards has been trebled. A police spokesman says, "We are responding with extra vigilance."
