Lord Attenborough is in a stable condition in hospital after an accident at home.
85-year-old Richard Attenborough was scheduled to unveil a plaque in honour of Brief Encounter actress Celia Johnson in Richmond-upon-Thames on Thursday but the Oscar-winning director could not attend the ceremony after hurting himself after falling in an accident at home.
The film-maker is currently recovering in St George's Hospital in Tooting.
A spokesman for the hospital in south-west London said: "Richard Attenborough suffered a fall at his home and is receiving care at St George's Hospital. He is currently in a stable condition."
Lord Attenborough is the elder brother of 82-year-old naturalist and wildlife show presenter Sir David Attenborough.
