The World's End: Letchworth features in comedy film

A new town where pubs were once banned was chosen as the setting for a pub crawl in a new sci-fi comedy film, tipped as a summer blockbuster.

Letchworth, in Hertfordshire, known for being one of the country's first garden cities, takes centre stage in The World's End, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost alongside some aliens.

Pegg said they wanted a relatively new city, post-war, which would be a suitable site for an alien invasion - and Letchworth fitted the bill.
