Sixteen people were injured in the crash, with two teenage girls needing leg amputations.

The Staffordshire theme park's operator Merlin Entertainments has been fined £5m for the crash on the rollercoaster.

Stafford Crown Court heard on Monday how engineers failed to notice a carriage that had stopped midway around the 14-loop ride.
