Tom Cruise has returned to the London set of Mission: Impossible 6 to film the same stunt he broke his ankle working on last year.

On Saturday, the 55-year-old actor was spotted shooting a scene, which involved him running across the top of Blackfriars Station chasing a helicopter, as he showed that he has put his injury firmly behind him.

Last year, a similar scene was filmed on the roof of office block Baynard House, but production was moved to Blackfriars Station and the sequence adjusted slightly to show Cruise jumping out of a window, rather than across a large gap, Mail Online reports.

In August, Cruise injured himself while performing a jump between two high-rise buildings in London, and movie studio Paramount revealed he had broken his ankle and filming was taking a temporary hiatus.

In a statement, the studio explained: "During production on the latest Mission: Impossible film, Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt.

"Production will go on hiatus while Tom makes a full recovery, and the film remains on schedule to open July 27, 2018.

"Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer."

Prior to shooting the movie, producer David Ellison revealed Cruise - who plays IMF agent Ethan Hunt in the money-spinning film franchise - has been "training for a year" for his part in Mission: Impossible 6.

David also claimed Tom's action-packed appearance in the film would "top" anything he's previously done on screen.
