A second location in Preston city centre has been used in the filming for a new action movie.

Preston Bus Station was transformed into an airport waiting lounge throughout Sunday (22 July).

Filming for the new Jackie Chan film IP Man 4 was going on inside and outside the Bus Station.

The northern area of the grade-II listed building’s concourse was cordoned off by security.
