There is a curious report today regarding location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. According to the Liverpool Echo, actor Bill Nighy has apparently been on the set for filming at the Birkenhead tunnel area of Liverpool, England. The paper says "The actor has been busying himself around Liverpool’s famous sites and eateries during breaks from filming the latest Harry Potter movie. He plays Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – the final film in the series – which has been shooting after dark in the Birkenhead tunnel. Insider spotted Bill at Gusto at the Albert Dock, and at the Italian Club on Bold Street where he was chatting to owner Rosaria about his upcoming big screen wizardry."
These scenes at the tunnel are widely believed to be for the Seven Potters sequence in Deathly Hallows. We are working to verify this report and will update with more when we can.
