The bad luck surrounding Bond 25 continues, this time in the form of an explosion that caused damage to the set and left one crew member injured.

"During the filming of a controlled explosion on the set of Bond 25 today at Pinewood Studios, damage was caused to the exterior of the 007 Stage," the official James Bond Twitter account shared. "There were no injuries on set, however one crew member outside the stage has sustained a minor injury."

"There were three huge explosions and it’s blown part of the Bond stage roof off and some wall panels off the stage," a witness told The Sun. "They were supposed to be filming. 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."
