Abergavenny residents had a surprise visit today (February 17) when the presenters of the motoring entertainment show Top Gear travelled through town.

Presenters Paddy McGuinness, Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff and Chris Harris were spotted filming scenes for an upcoming series of the popular TV show, with the trio stopping at Abergavenny bus station before getting behind the wheel of three articulated lorries driving through town via Cross Street and Monk Street.

It is not the first time the Top Gear team have been in town, with former presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May having visited for filming in 2012, driving customised scooters through the town’s high street.
