Filming for James Bond's next instalment No Time To Die has reportedly sparked a terror scare at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire.

There was allegedly mass panic after crew members on the Daniel Craig-fronted film left behind a van following days of filming, prompting 400 people to be evacuated from the base which was put on lockdown as bomb dogs were brought in.

Hundreds - Police - Area - Rumours - Vehicle

Hundreds were reportedly ordered away while police cordoned off a large area with rumours swirling that the vehicle in question was full of pyrotechnic explosives, however that was later disproved.

While it proved to be a simple case of No Time to Die's technicians accidentally leaving behind a vehicle after filming last week, The Sun have reported that it inadvertently prompted a terror scare.

Panic - Security - RAF - Brize - Norton

The panic reportedly began when security at RAF Brize Norton ordered a lockdown at 7pm after coming to the realisation that the van’s security passes had lapsed.

A source told the publication: 'Everything was packed up on Friday but amazingly one of the vans was left behind outside the mess. I don’t know if it was the film company or the hire company, but someone reported the van.

Dogs - Bomb - Disposal - Unit - Metre

'Sniffer dogs from a bomb disposal unit were sent in to investigate immediately. A 300 metre cordon was put in place while it was assessed by bomb disposal teams.'

'It is an unbelievable blunder to have caused such a massive security risk,' the source added.

'slap - Wrist - Film - Companies - Movies

It was also noted that despite getting a 'slap on the wrist', film companies will still be encouraged to make movies at the base because it 'brings in a lot of money.'

Last year the base was used to film part of Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
