London, Feb 8 (IANS) Shooting for the latest Harry Potter movie has resumed, a week after Daniel Radcliffe’s stunt double was seriously injured on the sets.
David Holmes, 25, was hurt while rehearsing a flying scene in the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. He suffered a back injury last Wednesday after falling from a harness at Leavesden Studios, near Watford, Hertfordshire, England, and was admitted to hospital, imdb.com reports.

Holmes has undergone spinal surgery and subsequently vowed not to let his injuries blight his career.

After the accident, the film set at the British studio was closed with the Britain’s Health and Safety Executive launching an investigation into the incident.

But the crew are now back at work, according to British newspaper the Daily Mirror.

The new movie is the seventh in J.K. Rowling’s wizard franchise and will be split into two parts, with the first scheduled for release in 2010.
