Filming on the new X-Men movie came to a halt when a buggy carrying James McAvoy crashed, according to reports.

The Sun told how the electric buggy tipped while ferrying the Wanted star around Pinewood Studios, Bucks, leaving him shaken.

James, 31, was not seriously hurt and was back at work the same day, the newspaper said.

The Scottish star has been cast as a young version of Charles Xavier, who is played by Patrick Stewart in the other X-Men films.

He had been shooting scenes for X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, with co-star Jennifer Lawrence.

X-Men: First Class, a prequel to the original trilogy, is expected to hit cinemas in June next year.
