Coronation Street extra injured on set

One of the extras working on Coronation Street was rushed to hospital during filming this week after ending up with a bloody nose.
It happened when they were filming the scene featuring Todd Grimshaw, who gets attacked by a group of thugs in a recent.(*)
But the extra required medical assistance after falling face first onto the pavement, leaving blood streaming from his nose. He was taken away in an ambulance and a stand-in was called in to replace him in the late night scenes in the city centre.
A Coronation Street spokeswoman said: “The actor in question sustained a minor injury when he fell during filming. He was taken to hospital as a precaution and is now fine and well.”

(*) I'm not condoning violence, but as it is Todd who got beaten up, so, er... YAY!
