The director of Brad Pitt's latest movie has offered his "heartfelt apologies" for filming battle scenes on Remembrance Sunday with extras wearing Nazi uniforms.
Scenes involving tanks and soldiers in Nazi uniforms were filmed until 2.30am on the makeshift battlefield in Shirburn, Oxfordshire, where the Hollywood blockbuster is being shot.
"My heartfelt apologies for any disrespect on Remembrance Day. I am a veteran myself. It is an honour to film here in the UK," said Ayer in a message on Twitter. He complained that "the story has been a tad exaggerated" and said they halted filming at 2am on Sunday.
