A crew member was injured in an explosion at Pinewood Studios in the UK on the set of the new James Bond movie. In the explosion, part of the set was also damaged.

The explosion was caused by a “controlled explosion” and damaged the outside of the Pinewood Studios, in Buckinghamshire.

No one working inside the studio was hurt, but one crew member outside suffered a minor injury.

British media reports indicate that the blast hit the set after a stunt went wrong, taking off part of the roof and several wall panels.

It comes after Bond star Daniel Craig was injured last month while filming in Jamaica, forcing the actor, 51, to undergo “minor ankle surgery” that required two weeks of rehabilitation. The 25th Bond instalment will be Craig’s fifth outing as 007.

Production of the film has been repeatedly delayed over script disputes, prompted in part by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s replacement by Cary Fukunaga in September.

The film is now due to open in cinemas in the United States, Britain and France on 8 April, 2020.
