Firm fined £1.6m over Harrison Ford injury


A production company behind the latest Star Wars movie has been fined £1.6m after Harrison Ford broke his leg on set.

The actor was injured in June 2014 at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire as he reprised his role as Han Solo.
He was struck by a metal door on the set of the Millennium Falcon spaceship.

Foodles Production (UK) Ltd, owned by Disney, pleaded guilty earlier this year to two charges brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Following the incident filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mr Ford was airlifted to hospital for surgery.
