Bond actor injures finger on set

Craig was shooting an action sequence when the accident occurred

Actor Daniel Craig received hospital treatment for a hand injury sustained while shooting the latest James Bond film, a spokeswoman has confirmed.

The star cut his finger shooting an action sequence at Pinewood Studios on Tuesday and received medical attention "as a precautionary measure".

The 40-year-old returned to the set later in the day to resume filming.

A publicist for production company Eon also confirmed the actor was treated for a facial injury last week.

But she denied reports a fire broke out at Pinewood over the weekend, saying any damage was the result of controlled pyrotechnics.

Car crash

In April the production suffered a vehicular mishap when a stuntman crashed an Aston Martin into Italy's Lake Garda.

Shortly afterwards, in a separate incident, a stuntman received serious injuries after crashing into a wall during a chase sequence.

Filming is scheduled to finish at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire next weekend.

Quantum of Solace is due out in the UK on 31 October.
