A lorry full of costumes for filming of new BBC One show 'The Outlaws' has been partially submerged - after reversing into a harbour. Production for the second season of the series starring Stephen Merchant was thrown into chaos after the large production HGV ended up partially submerged. The vehicle was pictured balanced awkwardly half in the water and half on the walkway of the floating harbour in Bristol. Witnesses said it appears to have somehow reversed through the barriers and was left teetering on the edge. Filming was taking place in the area and production staff have now confirmed the vehicle was full of costumes from The Outlaws. Season One is due to premiere on BBC One on Monday, October 25 at 9pm - and filming had been taking place in Bristol for the second season. A production spokesperson said: "An accident occurred involving one of our production vehicles. "No one was hurt or in the vehicle. We are investigating what happened and working on removing the vehicle as quickly and safely as possible." The incident happened next to the 'Revolucion de Cuba' and just along from the 'V-Shed' JD Whetherspoons pub, in sight of Peros Bridge. Avon Fire and Rescue were sent to the scene this morning (Thurs) to assist with the incident. The driver of the vehicle is reportedly 'shaken up but not injured' according to police. Recovery of the vehicle was launched with a large salvage truck arriving to remove it from the water via crane and winch.
