Quayside

In this scene when Con, or his stunt double jumps into the moving Jag and he falls on their arse, I wonder if that was scripted? I doubt it, I laugh every time I see it. Newcastle Quayside has changed dramatically since the film but this section is relatively unchanged. We can see one side of the Swing Bridge and the Iron bridge as they are about to cross the Tyne and in the right foreground we can see the old guild hall which was built between 1655 and 1658 at a cost of around 10,000. I'm hanging over the guardrails of the Tyne Bridge to take this picture and it was pretty dam high.
