'Bond 25': Studio Reacts to Discovery of Hidden Camera in Women's Toilet
Sony Pictures

Peter Hartley has been taken into police custody under voyeurism charge weeks after a 'controlled explosion' on set of the new 007 movie went awry and damaged part of its stage.

AceShowbiz - British police officials have arrested a man for allegedly planting a hidden camera in a women's restroom on the set of "Bond 25".

Bosses at Pinewood Studios, near London, called in cops last week (ends June 21) after the device was found in an area where director Cary Fukunaga was shooting the new 007 blockbuster.

Thames Valley detectives have since taken 49-year-old Peter Hartley into custody and charged him with voyeurism, according to Britain's The Independent.

Further details about the case have not been released, and it's unclear how, if at all, Hartley is connected to the studios or the "Bond" production.

A statement from Pinewood bosses reads, "We take this issue very seriously. We reported the incident to the police and are supporting them with their investigation."

The spy camera scandal is the latest headline-grabbing incident for "Bond" bosses - Fukunaga was hired last summer (2018) to replace Danny Boyle as director after his abrupt exit, while leading man Daniel Craig was injured as he filmed on location in Jamaica last month (May 2019).

Filmmakers are also facing an investigation by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) officials after a "controlled explosion" on set went awry earlier this month, causing a minor injury to one crew member and damaging part of the 007 stage.
