Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson has been injured when his McLaren F1 crashed and caught fire in Cambridgeshire.

The actor, also known for his role in Blackadder, was taken to hospital following the incident in Haddon on the A605.

The 56-year-old is thought to have injured his shoulder in the crash, which saw the supercar spin several times, run into a tree and lamppost before catching alight.

Luckily the actor walked from the crash but no doubt it will make for a costly claim to his car insurance provider, with the supercar likely to be worth in the region of £150,000.

The car enthusiast appeared on Top Gear and became the fastest Star in a Reasonably Priced Car - finishing the circuit in 1 minute 42.2 seconds.

Speaking on the show he was driving a 1964 Ford Falkan at the time.
