  Harry Potter map causes complaint

Filming of the second Harry Potter movie has started

Tourism bosses have been branded a "bunch of muggles" after they failed to mention Scotland on the Harry Potter map.

The map shows some of the key places around the UK where Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was filmed.

It is hoped the map will improve tourism in these areas as so many Potter fans will want to see where the movie was made.

'Outrageous'

But even though JK Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book in Scotland, and parts of Scotland feature in the film, it is barely mentioned on the map.

Scottish MP Pete Wishart said this was outrageous and he thinks Scotland will lose out on money and tourists.

But the British Tourism Association said filmmakers Warner Brothers had only given permission for eight locations to be used on the map.
