A film company has admitted health and safety breaches after Star Wars actor Harrison Ford was crushed by part of the film set.

Ford, who plays Han Solo in the hit films, was crushed by a hydraulic door on the set of the Millennium Falcon spaceship while filming the Force Awakens in 2014.

The Prosecution told Milton Keynes Magistrates court that Ford could have been killed after he was knocked to the ground and pinned by the heavy door as he rehearsed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

The actor was left with a broken leg.

Foodles Production (UK) will be sentenced next month.
