A week of location filming will take place at Eggborough Power Station, 25 miles east of Leeds, according to local outlet the Northern Echo.

The industrial site dates back to the mid-1960s and was closed as an operational plant only a few weeks ago.

The Yorkshire leg of the shoot for Hobbs and Shaw will be crewed from London, Universal Pictures confirmed to the Echo.

Production is based at Pinewood Studios outside London but there has also been high-profile location filming for the movie in central Glasgow involving high-speed road chases.
