A stuntman working on Brad Pitt's World War Ii movie Fury has been hospitalised in England after he was accidentally stabbed on set.

The 35 year old was rehearsing for a scene with another stunt expert on a private farm in Pyrton, Oxfordshire on Tuesday (15Oct13) when he was jabbed with a bayonet.

He was airlifted to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where he is currently receiving treatment for his injuries.

A spokeswoman for the production has confirmed the incident, although no further details - including the victim's identity - had been released as Wenn went to press.

Pitt is currently shooting Fury on location in Oxfordshire with co-star Shia LaBeouf and director David Ayer.
