The set of the final Harry Potter film is cursed, actors believe, after a series of incidents delayed filming on The Deathly Hallows.

According to newspaper The Sun, shooting came to a halt on Wednesday as storms battered the set.

Meanwhile, actor Daniel Radcliffe, 18, who stars as the hero Harry Potter, has received death threats.

The paper also said streakers and mistakes with special-effects fog have disrupted filming at Farnham, Surrey.

The Sun quoted a source as saying: "Actors are feeling the movie is jinxed.

"As this is the final Harry Potter film, dark forces are at work to prevent us finishing."

Film makers have confirmed the final instalment of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be split into two separate full-length films due to the length of J K Rowling's book.
