Terry Leather (Jason Statham) on the lookout.

Neil Rigby pinpoints Terry looking out over Chambers Street, Bermondsey, SE16 which he supports with a shot from Google Earth revealing the changes. (RL)

Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows cross the road somewhere in London

image no 2

Neil Rigby sent s Google shot to support his identification of "somewhere" as Geffrye Street, Hackney E2, now replaced: the entrance to Hoxton Overground is hidden by the new glass building. SJ

  • 'Now' required

Statham stands proudly outside his unspecified garage location. Actually, it is Chambers Street, Bermondsey, SE16 as in banjob001 (RL)

  • 'Now' required

A Mini pulls up at a London location. Again, it is Chambers Street, Bermondsey, SE16 as in banjob001 (RL)

A rough street (I assume dressed for the film).

image no 5

Neil Rigby provided a Google shot so we can make our own minds up as whether it is "rough" or "dressed". Temple Street, Bethnal Green, London E2, now replaced by SJ.

A vintage car pulls into view.

image no 6

Neil identified Queens Gate Mews, London SW7 which Google endorsed, but now replaced by a more accurate shot. This is close to Gloucester Road at the westernmost adjunct of the mews. SJ

A car pulls up at a London location.

image no 7

Neil Rigby found the location, with the aid of Google, as Blossom Street, London E1 which he recognised from Archie's lockup in Series 11 "Minder". Image now replaced, taken from the corner of Fleur de Lis Street, just north of Spitalfields, by SJ

The van heads for a garage.

image no 8

According to Neil Rigby the garage is at Kendal St/Park West, London W2 and this replaces his Googel shot. SJ

  • 'Now' required

A car peeps out from a side alley. There is a chance that this may be the Pinewood studio set.

The guys check out a London building.

image no 10

Neil Rigby with the aid of Google checked this out as the building on the corner of Baker Street next to The Globe public house on Marylebone Road, NW1. And here is the matching now taken from the underpass. SJ

This looks very much like the real thing (Lloyds Bank on Baker Street, London NW1), but it is an optical effect combining the Pinewood set with digital street extension.

image no 11

This is the real thing. SJ

Saffron Burrows gets picked up.

image no 12

According to Neil, Saffron was picked up in Queen's Gate Mews, London SW7. This is from Queen's Gate Terrace looking north towards the Layer Cake location. Note the finial gaps still there in the railings. SJ

The police rush to find the gang...in a location claiming to be Barclays Bank!

image no 13

Claiming indeed says Neil Rigby, Goldsmiths Hall, Foster Lane, London EC2 replacing Google Earth shot. (RL)

Another police car at another location.

image no 14

Only an unknown location until Neil Rigby gets onto the case, with the help of Google of course (28/3/16) Endsleigh Gardens, London WC1, now replaced by SJ.

Maybe the police will find them at an unspecified Midland Bank!

image no 15

And this was not a Midland Bank either says Neil Rigby, Gresham Street, EC2 Replacing Google Earth support shot. (RL)

or maybe the bad guys are at another (unknown) Lloyds Bank...

image no 16

More correctly says Neil Rigby, it wasn't even a bank! Wax Chandlers Hall, Gresham Street, London EC2 next to banjob015 Replacing Google Earth shot.(RL)

The chase is on along another London street.

image no 17

That "street" is actually Mecklenburgh Square, London WC1 according to Neil Rigby and Google Earth. And this replaces the google. SJ

A confrontation on a London street.

image no 18

Mecklenburgh Square, London WC1, Neil and Google once more, replaced by SJ

Returning to the hideout.

image no 19

There is no hiding from Neil Rigby or that Google camera, Cinnamon Street off Clegg St., London E1 (RL)

The police seem to be closing in on members of the gang .

image no 20

Neil Rigby knows where such things happen, Canrobert Street, Bethnal Green, London E2 also see in "Minder" episode "Caught in The Act". Replacing the Google View. This is just north of the intersection with Winkley Street. SJ

The police approach another London property.

image no 21

Neil Rigby and Google brought us back once again to Queens Gate Mews London SW7, now replaced, but the tilt is wrong so another go may be welcome. SJ

  • 'Now' required

One gang member is about the pay the ultimate price at an unknown London street. Neil Rigby suggests this as Christ Church, Southwark, London SE1. Having visited with a view to taking a "now" I would agree that the brickwork matches, as does the ironwork railings but so much re-development is in course it is impossible to confirm or establish where this shot might have been taken. Other frames either side might help. Oh yes, a number of trees have that "V" shape! (RL)

  • 'Now' required

At the gangsters unidentified overseas hideout. Possibly Sardinia, Italy.

The police give chase along a London street....

...known as Harrowby Street/Brown Street, London W1 says Neil Rigby to which Google Earth testified, replaced by similar non-G shot. SJ
