Trainspotting spotting: that’s a wrap as filming comes to an end

As the original cast of Trainspotting reunited to film the sequel on the streets of Leith (and Glasgow), we’ve been keeping track of their progress – with your help

The sequel to the 1996 cult classic isn’t released until January 27 next year, but we were at least able to get excited with photos of Ewan McGregor reunited with the cast and crew in Scotland.

Today (22 July) it came to an end, with McGregor posting an Instagram photo with the caption “Gutted”:
