A man has been bailed after an incident at Warner Brothers Studios, that left another man taken to hospital with a neck injury.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Constabulary said the 54 year-old was “arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm”.

Police told the BBC in a statement that a man in his 40s sustained a small laceration to his neck.

An ambulance took him to hospital and he was later released after treatment.

‘Isolated workplace incident’

The arrested man was released on bail until Wednesday, 17 July.

They were “known to each other,” said police, adding enquiries are continuing.

Eight films in the Harry Potter series were shot at the studios in Leavesden, and part of the lot is now taken by the Making of Harry Potter tourist attraction.

A spokesperson for Warner Brothers said: “I can confirm that there was an isolated workplace incident at the Warner Brothers studio production facility and the police are now handling the matter.”
