The discovery at the famous site in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, is believed to have been reported on Thursday.

Thames Valley Police said it was “investigating a report of voyeurism”, adding that a 49-year-old man had been arrested and remained in custody.

Pinewood is one of the most well-known shooting locations in the entire film industry, with it having hosted production on entries in the Star Wars, Jurassic World and Marvel franchises in the past few years alone.

Disney is a regular client, having used the site to film parts of recent hits like Dumbo and Mary Poppins Returns.
