The 71-year-old was injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon spaceship, according to a report in the Hollywood Reporter.

A spokeswoman for South Central Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 4.24pm to Pinewood to reports of a 71-year-old male who had sustained an injury to his ankle from a door that had fallen."
