Three children were seriously hurt in a theme park rollercoaster crash which saw a total of 10 people taken to hospital.

Eight children and two adults were taken to hospital after the Tsunami ride derailed and hit the ground at M&D’s amusement park at Strathclyde Country Park, Motherwell, North Lanarkshire, on Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses said people were trapped upside down when the ride came off the rails at around 3.40pm.

Those injured were taken to hospitals nearby.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde confirmed on Monday that it has four children at the Royal Hospital for Children. Three of them are in a serious condition, while one is described as stable.

One adult is in a stable condition at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, a health board spokesman confirmed.

NHS Lanarkshire said that five patients were taken to Wishaw General Hospital.

Of those, three children and one adult are said to be in a stable condition. One other minor has now been discharged, a spokesman confirmed.

Details of their injuries have not been released.

The Scottish Sun reported that a 12-year-old girl pulled from the crash was in a coma after suffering what was believed to be serious head injuries.

The newspaper also said an 11-year-old boy was undergoing surgery to save his hand.

Witnesses said the ride was full when it came off the track.

Police, firefighters and paramedics rushed to the scene as several visitors posted images on social media appearing to show a mangled carriage on a pathway surrounded by dozens of people.

Six ambulance crews, a specialist operation team and emergency doctors had rushed to the scene.
