Bond stuntman seriously injured

While filming a breakneck car chase for the new 007 movie, a stuntman was “gravely injured” yesterday according to officials.

The Quantum Of Solace stuntman suffered serious head injuries as he and another stuntman crashed during a car chase set-piece on a snaking lakeside road in the Italian resort of Lake Garda.

The spokesman revealed the man underwent surgery at a nearby hospital, while the second stuntman only suffered minor injuries.

It’s the second accident to hit the Quantum Of Solace team, after an Aston Martin careered off the road last Saturday and plunged into Lake Garda. More when we have it...
