City comedian arrested for breaking into Eastenders’ studio

Lee "Discoboy" Marshall and his video crew were detained by police after the early morning incident

Canterbury video comedian Lee Marshall has been arrested after being caught on the set of tv soap Eastenders.

Police found the 32-year-old YouTuber at the studio in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Three men with Marshall, who comes from Sturry and lives in Herne Bay, were also arrested.

The men were arrested for burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary.

Marshall posted on social media to say that police had gone “well overboard” and labelled them a “joke corrupt government agency”.

When contacted by the Canterbury Journal, Marshall said he had been advised by lawyers not to discuss his group’s arrest.

Since bursting on to social media, Marshall’s videos have been viewed more than a million times.

His pranks have included impersonating a police officer and setting up his mobile disco in a south London police station.

He has also danced and sung the Justin Bieber track Sorry in front of Archbishop of Canterbury outside the Cathedral.

Marshall has also had numerous other run-ins with the authorities.

He was also fined at Canterbury Magistrates Court for slapping fellow prankster Jack Jones with a slice of pizza outside the city’s West Station. The incident was filmed.

Jones was awarded £50 compensation. After the 2016 court hearing, Marshall branded it a waste of time.

He also charged the stage of the 2017 PDC World Darts Final and grabbed the Sid Waddell Trophy before being wrestled away by security officials. The final saw Michael van Gerwen of Holland defeat two times champion Gary Anderson from Scotland.

Police have released Marshall and his crew and say that their investigation into the incident at Borehamwood continues.
