Hold on to your hats, Indiana Jones 5 has started filming in Yorkshire.

And the sleepy North Yorkshire Moors railway has been transformed into a Nazi stronghold as filming gets underway, giving a tantalising clue about the so-far untitled film’s plot.

Harrison Ford, 78, is to dust of his fedora to return as Indy, a remarkable 40-years since the original Raiders of the Last Ark screened at cinemas.

Indy’s historic nemesis has been the Nazi regime with it featuring prominently in his previous films.

Two huge tents have also been built in a valley and signs appear to show Covid testing is being carried out on actors and extras.

Despite a plot which is rumoured to centre around a 1960s space race theme, the Yorkshire set appears to show some of the action will take Indy back to the Second World War. That suggests Ford could be transformed by CGI into his younger persona for flashback scenes.

Other stars will include Avengers star Thomas Kretschmann, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renée Wilson.
