Filming for a new instalment of the Star Wars franchise is reportedly going ahead in a South Oxfordshire field.

Production is taking place in Cuxham, near Watlington, with several large tents and marquees appearing in a field on the edge of the village.

Large vans and lorries have been entering the site for the last month with stewards dressed in Hi Vis jackets patrolling the entrance.
