Thrill-seekers stranded on rollercoaster

Nine people had to be rescued from a Scottish rollercoaster after they were left stranded 60ft in the air for hours.

Their afternoon of fun turned into a long evening with nowhere to go as the Tsunami ride in Strathclyde Country Park suffered a mechanical failure.

The car ground to a halt 60ft up, the only consolation being they were not upside down at the time, reports The Mirror.

A pain-staking rope rescue, which saw the visitors aged from nine to 49 winched off one-by-one, was eventually completed by the early hours of the morning.

A police spokesperson said: "At around 4.30pm one of the rollercoaster rides at M&D's theme park suffered what appeared to be a mechanical failure.

"Nine people of various ages were on the ride. Strathclyde Police and other emergency services were sent to the scene.

"Everybody is now safe and well. No-one needed to be taken to hospital."
