Police were called to the Neighbours studio last week after one of the soap’s regular extras began acting strangely and damaged part of the set.

According to the Herald Sun, the woman in question had to be taken to hospital by ambulance on Friday after slicing her wrist with a glass in a disturbance which took place during filming at Charlie’s Bar.

Neighbours’ executive producer Susan Bower commented: “It was a bit of a shock. One of our regular extras wasn’t really feeling the best and started behaving in an extraordinary way.

“She was very distressed and swung her hand and knocked a glass off a table.”

Producer Neal Kingston added: “We were concerned for the welfare of everyone and removed all cast and crew until the police arrived to assess the situation.

“She broke a couple of items so we cleared the situation to make sure everyone was okay and waited for authorities to arrive. She was assisted by police and went willingly outside with them.”

Police are said to have then called an ambulance and the extra was taken away to hospital, where her wrist injury was treated.
