SCREEN legend Sir Michael Caine will return to Chadwell Heath in a month's time after the heaviest snowfalls in a generation brought filming to an abrupt end last week.
Oscar-winner Caine, 75, was on location in an A12 subway near Warren Terrace for his new crime thriller Harry Brown but it became flooded.
