Keep a look out during the next tv advert break and you may just see a pair of meercats in Croydon.

Aleksandr and Sergei have been spotted shooting through the borough in the back of a London cab as part of the latest advert for insurance comparison company Comparethemarket.com.

Eagle eyed viewers will be able to spot locations such as Canterbury House and the Croydon Fly-over in the advertisement, filmed in June this year.

A spokesman for Comparethemarket.com confirmed Croydon had been identified as having the perfect locations for the advert, which sees office worker Steve Smith accosted by the Russian mammals before being offered his choice of cuddly toy.
