This is the terrifying moment when carriages on a 60m (198ft) amusement ride in Cardiff hit each other with people on board.

Those on the ground captured video footage of Friday's incident on the Sky Swing ride at the Winter Wonderland.

It is claimed the passengers were then left dangling for 10-15 minutes.

It is understood a gust of wind caused empty carriages to blow into ones that were occupied and the ride automatically shut down.

Sayers Amusements, which operates the ride, has been asked to comment.

The Winter Wonderland is a Cardiff Council event and the authority said it has sought assurances steps have been taken to ensure there is not another incident.
