A British stuntman has been stabbed with a bayonet on the set of Brad Pitt’s new film.

“Officers attended and the man was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital for treatment.
“We were called by the ambulance service.
“No-one famous was injured and we are not investigating any further.”
The spokesman said the Health and Safety Executive had been informed.
