ALBERT SQUARE has seen plenty of action over the years as the set of BBC One’s hit soap EastEnders, but the famous set could be at the centre of a real life drama this month – if New Fathers 4 Justice activists have anything to do with it.
The father’s rights group have revealed they are planning to target the EastEnders set as part of their latest campaign.
The activists – who fight for father’s rights to see their children – have already targeted Elstree Studios in Borehamwood and are now plotting to ambush the set of the East London-based soap.
The invasion of the studios comes as the group are planning a family court protest later this month.
The national spokesperson for New Fathers 4 Justice, Peter Moore, said: “We’d like nothing more than to be simply with our families this Christmas happy in the knowledge our children would grow up with equal rights, but until anything is done, this is the only way anyone takes any notice of our message.”
Referring to their past demonstrations on the same site, Peter explained: “We had one activist on the set in the summer as an extra taking pictures and another had been on a bus tour to the studios.”
However, Peter’s claims that the group have already accessed the set could be false, as an EastEnders’ insider told Digital Spy the show doesn’t run tour buses to the studios.
The hit drama series is just the latest in a long list of famous landmarks that have been targeted by the group. Just last week, activists Martin Matthews, 48, and Bobby Smith, 33, managed to climb on top of the Queen’s Gallery roof in London.
