The owners of Alton Towers theme park will face court after a rollercoaster accident which left 5 people injured.

16 people were on the Smiler ride when it crashed into another empty carriage in June 2015.

The Health and Safety Executive, who look after health and safety for the public across Great Britain, will take Merlin Attractions to court in April.

Rollercoaster crashes like this are incredibly rare.
