Emergency services confirmed that the four most seriously injured had been transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire and Royal Stoke University Hospital to receive specialist attention, having been trapped in the trains for some time. The other twelve occupants of the train suffered minor injuries which were treated at the scene and are believed to have been classed as walking wounded.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column]

When the park re-opens, it is thought X-Sector will remain closed until further notice. Some guests at the park reported that the ride had been affected by technical issues earlier in the day, however at this time there is nothing to link these issues with the incident. The Resort have set up a helpline for anyone concerned about relatives involved in the incident: 0800 056 0154[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our thoughts go out to those affected by this incident.

May I first say that my colleagues and I are devastated by what has happened here today, and our only priority at this time is to work with the emergency services to get the 16 people affected off the ride safely, and most importantly those who are injured being cared for.
Our concern for their safety, and all our thoughts and efforts are focused on them.
A full investigation is under way, and representatives of the Health and Safety Executive are already on site and working with us.
