Three huge explosions have rocked the set of the new James Bond film in Buckinghamshire, leaving it in pieces.

A statement posted to the film's official Twitter page said no injuries have been sustained on set, although a crew member did sustain minor injuries.

"It was utter chaos," a source told The Sun.

"There were three huge explosions and it's blown part of the Bond stage roof off and some wall panels off the stage."

"A fireball was supposed to go through the set. That was the stunt but something has gone horribly wrong."

This is the second incident to impact filming on Bond 25. In May filming was temporarily suspended after Daniel Craig injured his ankle during a chase scene and needed surgery. 

In March, director Danny Boyle quit the film over a script dispute with producers, reports The Guardian.

Pinewood Studios has not announced whether this latest hindrance will push back the film's release date of April 3, 2020.
