A FILM crew has taken over a car park in Winchester, although staff are staying tight-lipped about the production being shot.

Support vehicles arrived in the Barfield Park and Ride site, in Barfield Close, on Monday, June 6.

Antony said: "We are thrilled to be here in Winchester. We have been doing all sorts, we have fed thousands of people throughout the pandemic and we feed homeless people everyday, we love our business and we love what we do. We are chuffed to be here."

Antony said they are expecting to stay for at least a day, but he could not divulge what is being filmed, where or who, or how many people they were expecting to feed.

According to a separate source, who did not want to be named, the production has two other sites nearby, and the Barfield site will be used for catering and make-up, with extras bussed in from another site in the area.

They said the production was 'possibly linked to Disney', and that it had an '£11m budget to film the pilot'.

They said that the film had already shot scenes at Minley Manor, a Grade II listed country manor house in Camberley.

Winchester City Council has been contacted for comment.

Motorists were being advised to use alternative park and ride sites for Tuesday, June 7.
