COUNCIL chiefs turned off a webcam overlooking George Square while filming for the upcoming The Flash movie took place, it has been claimed. 

The Scottish Sun reports that producers are thought to have asked Glasgow City Council for the live stream to be cut in the city centre spot. 

Images showing daily activity in George Square have not been online for several days. The camera usually updates every 20 seconds to allow people to see what is happening and check the weather.

A source said: “There’s been ongoing filming in George Square and the council’s webcam which looks onto the set has been turned off.

“Some productions are quite shy about these things for fairly obvious commercial reasons.

“They want to control the images that are going out to minimise spoilers for cinemagoers.

“They asked if it could go off for a while, while the filming was going on. It’s my understanding that the camera will come back on once they’re done filming.”
