Radio One Big Weekend sets up at Whitby Abbey - is it Coldplay or Ed Sheeran?

Tight security surrounds the Whitby Abbey car park as a BBC production is filmed on the site today.

Security staff and BBC spokespeople have been tight lipped about what is happening at Whitby Abbey today, with rumours flying round the town about who may be performing at the historic site.

Radio One DJ Greg James let slip on the One Show last week that filming would be taking place at the historic attraction, and security guards have said off the record that Coldplay may be recording a set there this evening.

Other sources have named Ed Sheeran as the potential star attraction.

Perhaps it will be both! Whoever it is, we've been told to look out for fireworks later in the evening.
