A crew-member has been stabbed on the set of Anne Hathaway’s new movie at the Warner Bros studios in London.

The attack took place around lunch time on Wednesday near filming for the new remake of Roald Dahl’s The Witches.

Two crew members are believed to have gotten into a scuffle over after one stole the other’s tea bag, according to Daily Mail, with the altercation ending violently.

“One man sustained a neck injury and was taken to hospital by ambulance,” a spokesman confirmed.

“A second man was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and is currently in police custody.”

“It is believed the men are known to each other. Enquiries are continuing at this time to establish the circumstances around what happened.”

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

The vast studio complex has been the location for hundreds of Hollywood blockbusters, recently including Wonder Woman 1984, Men In Black: International and Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

It's also the location of the Harry Potter studio tour attraction, which opened in 2012.

The Oscar winner is starring in the second major adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic children's book, with veteran director Robert Zemeckis behind the camera.

Filming began at Leavesden last month, with Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and Chris Rock also among the cast.

Anne is playing the lead role of the Grand High Witch, Miss Eva Ernst and the flick is set for release in October 2020.
