Plans for a film studio on the outskirts of Edinburgh have been submitted to Midlothian Council.

The £40m Pentland Studios project would offer studio space and production facilities in the Straiton area of the city.

Creative Scotland has ringfenced £1m towards the cost of a Scottish studio, while the Scottish government has pledged a further £2m loan.

Several organisations are interested in turning other sites into studios.
