Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have arrived by train in Scotland, where Brad will shoot scenes for a new zombie movie.

The A-listers - who had been staying with their brood in a plush home in Richmond - travelled on a Virgin train from London to Glasgow Central station.

Parts of Glasgow city centre are being turned into streets resembling the US city of Philadelphia for the World War Z movie.

Silver people carriers with tinted glass were allowed onto platform 11 at the station to take Brad and Angelina away after they arrived on Tuesday.

Crowds were kept more than five metres away from the beginning of the platform and views were blocked by one of the vehicles.

Elsewhere in the city, work crews were putting up yellow traffic lights, while yellow taxis and white Philadelphia police cars were parked around George Square, a few streets from the station.

Signs for 16th street and "J F Kennedy Bl" were also visible in the area.

The film is based on Max Brooks' 2006 novel World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War, which is set in Philadelphia in the aftermath of a war between humans and zombies.

It is due to be released next year.
