One person needed hospital treatment and 10 others were treated at the scene after a fairground ride collapsed at a park in Cambridgeshire.

Twenty-five people were on the spinning ride - which lifts thrill-seekers off the ground to an almost vertical position - when it happened.

East of England Ambulance Service said a male suffered a suspected ankle fracture in the incident at the funfair in St Neots on Friday night.

The ride's owners declined to comment.

"I heard a loud bang and the ride fell to the ground," an eyewitness said.

The Health and Safety Executive is to investigate.
