Stuntman injured at Royal Welsh Show

A bike stuntman, known as the 'Kangaroo Kid', has been injured after falling off during a live performance at the Royal Welsh Show.

Matt Coulter, who's from Australia and known for his world-class displays, was jumping over a dumper truck in the Main Ring when the accident happened.

The back wheels of his bike clipped the top of the truck and he fell off.

The commentator at the Showground said he has injured his shoulder, but is in good spirits, and Mr Coulter hopes to be back in the ring later in the week.
