Police were dispatched after screams were heard coming from a pub in Kent - only to find the source was a film set.

Kent Police said a passer-by called the force saying he could hear a woman screaming in the Sussex Arms in the Pantiles area of Tunbridge Wells.

An officer arrived, to discover the screams were coming from a film set.

Brighton-based Substantial Films said the crew had been filming a horror scene last week featuring a woman being tortured with a blow torch.

It said the short film was part of a campaign to raise £30,000 to shoot a psychological horror film.
