Ah poor Harrison. His trip to the UK so far as been somewhat marred. First he gets refused from the Punchbowl boozer, and now he's after getting a seriously hurty ankle thanks to a hydraulic door "crushing it" (I know the headlines doing the rounds would lead to you believe his entire being had been pancaked). These things happen in threes... Let's start a good ole 'set curse'! Not quite to Superman levels though, we wouldn't be wishing a curse of that magnitude on anyone.

The 71-year-old was rushed to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford after he was crushed by a hydraulic door at the Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

A source told The Sun: "Harrison was filming a scene and part of the set - a hydraulic door - collapsed. A door ended up crushing part of his leg. Everyone was very shocked. He was rushed to hospital in an air ambulance because nobody wanted to take any chances. He's one of the movie's biggest stars and nobody could believe something like this happened so early."

Harrison - who plays Han Solo in the Disney sci-fi franchise - will obviously be taking some time off following the nasty accident in order to recuperate, but bosses insist filming for the movie, which is set for release in December 2015, will continue.

Disney later released a statement saying: "Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates."

A health and safety investigation has been launched into the cause of the accident and other parts of the set will have to be re-checked before filming can commence.
