Explosion on the set of new James Bond film leaves one injured

Cape Town – The James Bond 25 film has suffered another hit.

A test explosion caused damage to the Pinewood Studios and left one crew member injured.

The Sun reports that a 'controlled explosion' went horribly wrong during a stunt test.

A source told the publication that there were three explosions and that it blew part of the Bond stage roof off and some of the wall panels.

"A fireball was supposed to go through the set. That was the stunt, but something has gone horribly wrong. There were three loud explosions, one after another, and a member of the crew was lying on the floor outside the building injured," said the source.

No one working on the set was hurt but a crew member outside sustained minor injuries.

The official James Bond account later tweeted about the incident.


This is the latest setback on the highly anticipated film which will be Daniel Craig's fifth outing as the titular character.

In May the 51-year-old injured his ankle and had to receive surgery for it.
