An actor in the new Indiana Jones film being shot in Glasgow took a spill while performing a chase scene.

The as yet untitled fifth instalment of the adventure series has shut down parts of the city centre in recent weeks, transforming buildings and businesses into Manhattan of the late 1960s and mimicking a parade for the returning Apollo 11 astronauts.

But filming was brought to an abrupt halt as one of the actors took a spill performing a scene and had to be seen by an ambulance crew.

The performer, whose name is not known, appears to be involved in a chase involving Harrison Ford's character through the parade, when he barges through a brass band of sailors.

But the fall, which prompted the attention of the medical team, most likely was not in the script.

Luckily, the stricken actor is back on his feet before too long and gave the crowd a wave to signal he is not seriously hurt.

Before the spill, director James Mangold could be seen instructing the actor on his performance, aggressively running through the band – his face contorted in mock anger – and running with his arms aloft.

At other points in Sunday's (July 18) filming, a body double for Ford could be seen riding a horse and bursting through a banner adorned with the words "a giant leap for mankind" – the phrase made famous by Neil Armstrong when he took his first steps on the moon in 1969.

A body double for actor Boyd Holbrook was also seen as part of the chase scene on a motorcycle.

Filming has so far featured several hundred extras.

Other main stars in the movie include Mads Mikkelsen, Antonio Banderas, Thomas Kretschmann, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Toby Jones. – dpa
