Four people have been injured in an accident on a water ride at West Midlands Safari Park.

Georgia Hodgkiss was at West Midland Safari Park on Sunday and said she saw a boat with people in it turn upside down.

Georgia heard a “big bang” and saw that a boat used on the ride had turned over.

“Some people were coming out from underneath it, they were absolutely drenched,” she said. 

“One lady looked really shaken up.”

A West Midland Safari Park spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that emergency services have been called to the park as a precautionary measure following an incident involving our Wild River Rafting ride.

“Four visitors are receiving treatment for minor injuries and are being looked at closely.

“We will continue to co-operate with the emergency services to support them at this time.”
