Alton Towers victim Vicky Balch 'feared she would die'

One of the victims of the Alton Towers rollercoaster crash has told the BBC that she thought she was going to die.

Vicky Balch, 20, from Lancashire, is still in hospital two weeks after the accident at the theme park in Staffordshire.

She sustained such serious injuries that she may have to have one leg amputated.

She has described the "excruciating pain" she suffered as she was trapped on the ride for more than four hours after the accident.
