Krysty Wilson-Cairns: 1917 location 'in my back garden'

The Scottish screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns has said it was "really special" to have the award-winning war drama 1917 filmed in her home town.

Scenes for 1917 were shot at the A-listed Govan Graving Docks in Glasgow.

Wilson-Cairns, from Shawlands in Glasgow wrote the script with director Sam Mendes.

She told BBC Scotland's The Edit it was incredible to film in a location where her grandfather worked 90 years ago.
