London, Feb 7 (ANI): The film set for the latest Harry Potter movie has been given permission to reopen after an accident that left a stuntman badly injured.

Brit actor Daniel Radcliffes stunt double David Holmes, who suffered serious back injury on the set in an accident that took place on January 28, is still in hospital.

After the accident the set was cordoned off, but now the Health and Safety Executive has agreed for it to reopen.

We have carried out a site visit and the set has now reopened, the Telegraph quoted a spokesman as saying.

The investigation is ongoing, he stated.

Holmes is receiving treatment at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, in Stanmore, northwest London, which counts treatment for acute spinal injuries among its specialities.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which is due to be released in the summer, is in production at the Hertfordshire studios. (ANI)
