Fairground operator fined over ride fall in Leicestershire

A fairground ride operator has been fined £6,000 after two teenage boys were thrown from a ride.

William Roberts was prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive after a carriage on the Mega Bounce Frog Ride, at the Billy Bates fair in Abbey Park tipped over, in July 2012.

He apologised for the incident and said he would ensure it never happened again.
