A four-year-old girl who was injured on a ride at an East Yorkshire seaside resort has been discharged from hospital.

The girl and her 58-year-old grandmother suffered leg injuries on the Jungle River log flume ride on the seafront in Bridlington on Sunday.

The 58-year-old woman is said to be comfortable and improving in Hull Royal Hospital.

Police said the pair were visiting the resort from the South Yorkshire area.

Witnesses described seeing the ride jam on its rails then restart, "flipping" them from the carriage.

Rescuers from the Bridlington Coastguard worked to clear enough space in the crowd for the air ambulance helicopter to land.

The Health and Safety Executive and Humberside Police are investigating the accident.
