London, June 19 (ANI): Bond legend Sir Sean Connery was honoured when he returned to his native Edinburgh, Scotland, to see a plaque unveiled on the site of his former home.

The legendary actor was back in the Fountainbridge area of the city, visiting the street where he was born in 1930.

In Connery’s honour, the plaque has been positioned on a new housing development and has been built on the site of his former family residence.

Crowds of locals took to the streets to welcome the actor home.
