The producer for The Foreigner movie explained they had issued notification to the nearby residents and made sufficient warnings such as distributing flyers. However, the residents remained unsatisfied and complained to the relevant authority. They expressed the notifications was inadequate and it reminded them of the terrorist attack during year 2005. But Port of London disclosed the firefighters were prepared before the filming in case of any accidents.
