A family have described the moment a theme park ride failed, leaving them covered in hydraulic fluid.
The Tuckwell family from Countes-thorpe in Leicestershire were on a day trip to Twinlakes theme park in Melton when the incident happened.
Marilyn Tuckwell and three of her grandchildren were on the ride, which launches people into the air as they are seated before bringing them back down to the ground, when there was a loud bang.
The riders were then thrown several feet to the ground whilst still seated in the passenger compartment.
They were then covered in hydraulic fluid which started leaking from the ride.
Twinlakes Theme Park was unavailable to comment.
