A source said at the time: ‘It was utter chaos. A fireball was supposed to go through the set. That was the stunt but something has gone horribly wrong. 

‘There were three loud explosions, one after another, and a member of the crew was lying on the floor outside the building injured. The place is now on total lockdown.
