A rollercoaster ride had to be stopped mid-ride when someone put their leg outside the cart.

The Colossus at Thorpe Park, Surrey, was halted when staff saw on CCTV that someone had "ignored restrictions".

A spokeswoman said the ride was stopped and passengers were evacuated as soon as possible.

No-one was hurt and the Colossus was "back up and running" a short time later.
