Footage shows the filming of IP Man taking place at Preston Bus Station.

Shot from the nearby St John’s Shopping Centre the brief clip by Tracey Mills shows how the grade-II listed building was transformed into a 1960s airport.

Yellow taxis pull up at the entrance and a man in black, actor Donnie Yen, can be seen moving around the set.

An extra on the set snapped the 54-year-old Hong Kong actor, martial artist and director in action.

It’s the second scene of the film to be shot in Preston city centre.

Lancaster Road was the back-drop for another scene outside Preston Guild Hall.

The film also features Jackie Chan but he’s understood not to be filming any scenes in Preston.
