Auction house in the TV spotlight

A BOROUGH business-woman, with more money than scruples, has been brought down a peg or two by a team of con-artists.

A BOROUGH business-woman, with more money than scruples, has been brought down a peg or two by a team of con-artists.

Not a case from Solihull Magistrates, but the latest episode of Hustle - a BBC drama about a team of top grifters.

In the most recent episode, the gang had their sights on a shady character from “a run-down suburb of Solihull”.

Georgina Althorp (played by Angela Griffin) was swindled by the hustlers, who had made a special trip to Birmingham.

But there’s one Silhillian at least who’s safe from the team, because he let them use his business for filming.

Jeremy Thornton, managing director of auction house Biddle & Webb, welcomed the programme’s film crews.

Shooting took place at his Birmingham firm last summer for scenes that will appear in tonight’s episode.

For the past two series, the show has been filmed in and around the city, although it’s usually doubling for London.

The Solihull News had broken the story about the drama relocating to the Midlands, after chatting to star Robert Vaughn at the NEC.
