Police are investigating after a TV crew filming the controversial Immigration Street series in Southampton were pelted with eggs and flour.

Members of the Love Productions team were filming outside a shop in Derby Road when they were targeted by a gang of youths.

Members of Newtown Residents' Association said the crew ran off.

Police confirmed that they are investigating the incident, which occurred on Tuesday at just after 5.30pm.

A police spokesman said: “We received a report of a public order incident involving a television production crew.

“The incident is currently under investigation. No further details are available at this time.”

The six-part Immigration Street series is due to be screened next year.

A Channel 4 spokesman said no-one was hurt in the incident.

She added: “We intend to continue to film with residents who are very happy to share their experience of living in Derby Road.

“We would urge anyone who has concerns about their participation to discuss them with the production team.”

Love Productions declined to comment on the egg-throwing incident.

Feelings have been running high since plans to film Immigration Street - a sequel to the highly controversial Benefits Street series filmed in Birmingham - were revealed earlier this year.

Last month scores of residents attended a public meeting to vent their anger at Love Productions.

Their concerns centred on fears that the programme name is racist and does not accurately describe the people who live in Derby Road.

Campaigners urging the firm to drop the programme and “go home” and were backed by local councillors and MPs.

Well let me see... they managed to describe them as youths, so we know we are not looking for old people, they could narrow it down more by stating their race - as KSO16R says it helps to narrow it down - I suspect though they are deliberately avoiding it as non-PC when connected to this story!

This show should not have been made in the first place.

Benefit Street has created a celebrity who has no intention of working yet she has an agent! It's ridiculous. They deserve to have eggs, yams, root ginger, sweet potato & all manner of bountiful exotic foods thrown at them.

Get rid. Horrendous idea proved by the results of their first venture.

Maybe the producers should abandon this programme and opt instead for an alternative: Bigot Street. Seemingly from posts here they would have no problem in finding people in some parts of Southampton willing to go on air in order to voice their vile, racist views.

Your right with your post but i never said Woolston was great but its a lot better than Derby Road.
Nine times out of ten its the rented houses that 15-20 foreigners share which are the worst.

No, but they are deliberately ignoring providing a full description of the suspect (i.e. White, Asian, Black) so as to not give either side ammunition. They normally provide this as it helps to identify suspects.

Labour has no monoply over political correctness; neither do most of its supporters and members go along with the sniffy school marm values that - when they come from the liberal intelligentsia - are dubbed PC. Nah, the people I despise are the Poujadist closet nazis who hide behind middle class respectability to hide their own self interest and sense of entitlement.

Absolutely. The Echo constantly supports and encourages the racists who populate this site on a daily basis. Free press - only for right wing racist scum.

Standard leftist abuse. To save your little typing hand, why not abbreviate it to SLA? We all know the stuff, same old, trotted out every time. Sad that the knuckle draggers who threw the food aren't capable of understanding the concept of good publicity.
Expect the next rant from the Stalinists to be "don't buy any product advertised in this series"

I didn't realise that pointing out racist bigotry by ill informed stunted angry sad little cowards made me a commie.
I thought it just made me a bit further up the food chain.
As you will.

Why is is as soon as someone says something that's completely true they pull the race card. Let's face it the area is an actual dump, this is in no way shape or form racist. It's completely honest go and see for yourselves. Yes there are I the areas of equal concern but this is by far one of the worst!!

Ripped to shreds? More like the City shown up by a bunch of tools hassling a tv crew just doing their job.
Don't even try to justify the morons actions, you'll just make it worse.

Those dolts just shot themselves in the foot - not the best way to back up the "community leaders" assertions that its a wonderful friendly area with no problems and no immigration issues.

Yes because bigots have closed minds, and already think every immigrant is a thug and brain dead and much worse besides. Bigots are ignorant by definition and when the beliefs they hold are about immigrants it's odds on they are racist as well. You've certainly shown yourself as one. That's the irony of it. lol indeed.

No. never mistake SLA for intellectual superiority. Frankly cognition skills are pretty absent in those who still trot out long disproved 19th century pseudo-science.
The open door policy of the Failure Years 97-2010 have been a very bad time for the people of this country and for the incomers, and no amount of name - calling on your part alters that . One hopes that assimilation may be possible over the next 3 generations but clearly the open sore created by our membership of an EU open to the recently-freed slave states of the Soviet Union is a massive problem.

KSO16R & Saintjock -good examples of really lazy SLA. Stick to your day jobs of gobbing off in "demos". Far more fun.
If you managed to function occasionally you'll have read what's happening in Calais, Menton, and if it doesn't scare you then you really are far gone in the failed dogma of universal socialism
