British director Ken Loach was hospitalised in Scotland on Monday following a freak fall on the set of his new film.
The 74 year old is currently shooting The Angel’s Share but he took a tumble on the steps of Glasgow’s Sheriff Court and sought medical attention at the city’s Royal Infirmary, reports the Daily Record.

A source tells the publication, “Lots of the crew were rushing around in a huge panic. Ken slipped on a step coming up from the canteen and cracked his head.”

Loach is expected to be released from hospital on Tuesday.
