Plans for a multi-million pound expansion of Buckinghamshire's Pinewood Studios have been given the go-ahead. It comes as filming continues on the set of the new Star Wars franchise.
The Department for Communities and Local Government confirmed ministers had approved plans for the studio expansion. Film companies including Universal, Disney and LucasFilms backed the £20m Project Pinewood, while London Mayor Boris Johnson and the British Film Institute also came out in favour.
It comes after the Buckinghamshire-based site was earmarked as the filming location for the next instalment of the Star Wars franchise, Episode VII.
