A roller coaster at Thorpe Park was stopped in mid-air this morning and all the passengers were "evacuated" after a passenger put their leg out of the cart.

A Thorpe Park spokesperson said: "We stopped Colossus because a guest ignored our ride restrictions and put their leg outside of the cart while on board Colossus which was spotted by our vigilant staff on CCTV."

"Therefore we stopped the ride as soon as possible and evacuated all guests."

Fortunately, due to the quick action of staff no one was hurt.
