Aidan Turner injured in freak accident while filming Poldark

He may play the smooth swashbuckling hero Ross Poldark onscreen, but it turns out Aidan Turner isn't as comfortable as the character he plays when it comes to the sea, or at least he isn't anymore after a freak wave caused an accident on set of season two of the hit show. Turner was filming a scene on the Cornish coast with co-star Eleanor Tomlinson when Mother Nature reared her ugly head and reminded him and everyone who was boss. "We were filming me lifting Demelza out of a boat in the sea when this huge wave picked up the boat and slammed it into my head," he said in a recent interview.

Tallaght-DundalkIt was a breathless finish – but perhaps not the breathless finish anybody expected. There was a sense of inevitability – though also understandable relief – when substitute Robbie Benson pounced on a stray pass from BATE Borisov defender Yurk Kendysh and placed the ball calmly past Sergei Veremko in the 90th minute. Not that such a mood could be detected in the 5,000-strong home support, the most vocal of whom has been reduced to silence as the parlous one-goal cushion persisted into the closing stages.
