Star Wars: Andor - actors and Stormtroopers spotted on Cleveleys prom during filming

For the last decade, Cleveleys promenade has told its own fantasy story - but now the bad guys have been spotted in town, and a new tale has begun from a galaxy far, far away.

Cleveleys seafront has been home to the Mythic Coast Trail since 2010, with artwork installed from the children's story "The Sea Swallow."

But since last week, the promenade has been transformed once again - not by Mary's Shell, the Paddle or the Ogre this time - but by a world-famous intergalactic saga.

Despite the production company, believed to be E&E Industries, keeping tight-lipped, it seems that Star Wars has indeed come to Cleveleys - and the bad guys have followed.

Stormtroopers and sandtroopers, members of the elite troop loyal to the Empire, emerged on set today, looking as menacing as ever in their white suits and helmets.

Their presence in Cleveleys saw swarms of movie fans take to the Prom to catch a glimpse of them - but did they also see the Andor series' leading man, Diego Luna?

Luna confirmed he would reprise his role as Cassian Andor following his appearance in the Star Wars movie Rogue One, but it remains unconfirmed whether he will be filming in Cleveleys.

Filming has ramped up since beginning on Saturday, May 1, with green screens going up on Anchorsholme Prom today, and increasing numbers of vehicles parking up near the beach.

But was Cassian Andor out enjoying the sun while his fans looked on with their cameras at the ready - and was Andor screenwriter Tony Gilroy there alongside him?
