Dowsetts Newsagents, of Teddington, has featured as the location for a series of adverts for The National Lottery.

Store owner Bharat Mehta said the 80-year-old store’s classic features and proximity to Teddington Studios probably made it stand out to the location scouts.

“Local people all noticed it and we’ve had lots of enquiries about what the filming was,” Mr Mehta said. The store was closed for around 12 hours while Pulse Films shot the ad from 10am to 10pm.
