BBC reporter gets stuck on world's fastest zip line

11 April 2013 Last updated at 09:25 BST

The BBC's Joanne Whalley, who reports for the travel programme Fast Track, found herself stuck in mid-air when she went to report on a new zip wire ride that opened at the disused Penrhyn slate quarry in Bethesda, north Wales in 2013.

With speeds of more than 150 km/h (100mph) the operators said it was the longest in the northern hemisphere and the fastest in the world - but high winds brought Joanne's ride to an abrupt stop.

Watch the report in full and see more travel features at the BBC's Fast Track website.
