Sacha Baron Cohen's New Movie In the Works

Sacha Baron Cohen angers residents of Grimsby and Tilbury

Essex port doubles for Lincolnshire town in Baron Cohen's new movie, which apparently portrays Grimsby as a rundown badlands strewn with litter and peopled by beer-swigging children and hooligan parents.

Some residents of Grimsby have been outraged after the Lincolnshire town was portrayed as a deprived den of iniquity in the latest film from Sacha Baron Cohen.

Titled Grimsby, the Borat comic's new movie centres on a spy who is forced to go on the run with his football hooligan brother. Cohen has been filming scenes in the Essex port town of Tilbury, which has been transformed into a rundown "Grimsby", complete with householders urinating out of their windows and children being offered beer.

Gardens have reportedly been strewn with rubbish and graffiti painted on walls in an apparent effort to increase the town's "Grimsbyness". Shops have had their fascias and hoardings altered, with Tilbury Wines transformed into "Grimsby Fired Chicken” and Right Time African restaurant becoming wedding store "Maids and Brides”.

Tilbury residents gathered in the rain last week to watch scenes being filmed, with some saying they did not recognise their home town. “I’d been away for two weeks and came back last night so confused because all the shops had changed and said Grimsby on them – I thought I was drunk," Bethany Casey, 19, told the local Thurrock Gazette newspaper. “I tried to get to the off-licence and thought ‘what’s going on here?’ so I went to the other one further down and noticed a run-down park had sprung up – but I didn’t think anything of it because, if they did put a new park in Tilbury, it would get wrecked straight away.”

Sacha Baron Cohen 'threatened' with execution by ex-Grimsby MP in response to his latest film

SACHA Baron Cohen has been urged to ‘go back to Kazakhstan and die’ or ‘be executed by sustainable energy’ in Grimsby, by the ex-MP of the town.

Austin Mitchell’s comments in defence of the seaside town come in a review of the comedian’s latest movie.

He said it was ‘a total distortion of a wonderful little community’ and felt ‘furious anger’ after watching the film.
