Potter production studio told to improve safety

As we all remember, it was back in late January when Harry Potter stuntman David Holmes was critically injured on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows while rehearsing.

An investigation quickly followed, and The Telegraph is reporting today that the Health and Safety Executive told the Potter production team to improve the safety of its sets by the end of June:

A spokesman said: “The investigation is still ongoing. As a remedial act we have issued an improvement notice to the company asking them to improve the way they do stunt rehearsals using wires.

“They have got two months to look at that.”

DDD Co Ltd has 21 days to appeal against the notice, the spokesman added.
