Clearly feeling the cool winter weather, he carried an oversized blue parka jacket to wear in-between shooting scenes.

Ed was joined by his co-stars, as well as The Inbetweeners actors, James Buckley and Joe Thomas on set.

The second series was halted in November last year after the actor was accused of sexual assault by four women.

The district attorney’s office decided to go forward with an investigation into three of the allegations in March. 

In a memo released in July, prosecutors said they were not able to collect enough evidence to pursue charges against Westwick.

Westwick’s lawyer Blair Berk told TMZ: ‘The evidence was clear from the start that each of the allegations made by these three women were absolutely untrue.

‘It is a shame there are those who prejudged this case and that it took over eight months for Ed to be officially cleared of all of these charges.

‘I hope that those who made such quick judgment here not knowing anything about the abundant evidence of innocence in this case will hesitate next time before they so publicly accuse someone who has committed no wrongdoing.’

The actor, 31, also vehemently denied the claims on Twitter, writing: ‘I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape.’
