Activity has leaked from Cockburn Street down to Waverley Station which has now been revealed as another film location.

A 40ft green screen has been erected in the normally empty concourse, next to platform 2.

The boarded-off area shields a replica coffee kiosk, bike racks, old phone booths and rubbish bins, with reports the area will be used until May.

Filming will start on Cockburn Street tomorrow and on the Royal Mile from March 30.
