Teenager rescued after getting trapped on Brean rollercoaster ride

A teenager was rescued by fire and ambulance crews after getting trapped on a rollercoaster ride in Brean last night (Sunday).

Emergency services were called to Brean Leisure Park in Coast Road shortly after 8pm.

A fire service spokesman told "We were called to a report of a young female trapped within the footwell of a rollercoaster car."

"The 15-year-old female was medically trapped in the footwell of a rollercoaster cart. Crews worked with paramedics to release her."

The front of the rollercoaster carriage was removed using a reciprocating saw and small tools to release the teenager from the cart.

One fire appliance from Burnham-On-Sea attended alongside a rescue tender from Taunton. The girl was released into the care of the ambulance crew.
