A STUNTMAN HAS suffered “serious” head injuries on the set of Fast and Furious 9, forcing filming in Hertfordshire to be suspended. 

Emergency services were called to the Warner Bros Studio in Leavesden, yesterday afternoon. 

The man sustained “serious injuries” while working at the studio, according to police. 

Hertfordshire Police said it was called to the scene before noon yesterday followed closely by the air ambulance. 

Police officers were there to “assist at the scene and carry out initial enquiries”, a spokesperson said. 

“The incident has been referred to the Health and Safety Executive and there will be no further police involvement,” Hertfordshire Police said in a statement. 

The man was taken by air ambulance to the Royal London Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries. 

“We had an injury on the set of Fast 9 today in Leavesden with one of our stuntmen. We have halted production for the day to focus on this situation,” a spokesperson for Universal told the BBC.
