A MAN and two children were injured on one of the water rides at a Wiltshire holiday resort.

An investigation has now been launched by Wiltshire Council following the incident at Center Parcs in Longleat.

As reported by the BBC, a man, his nephew, aged 12, and niece, 13, were hurt on the Tropical Cyclone ride at the holiday firm's site on August 19.

It is understood the man was taken to hospital with suspected broken ribs, while both children suffered minor head injuries.

Center Parcs apologised for the upset caused but said it was "simply an unfortunate accident".

It was also reported that following the incident, staff closed the ride and conducted safety checks.

A spokesman said Center Parcs was confident there were "no issues" with the ride and staff had correctly loaded the raft.

It comes just over a month after a young boy died at the resort, after he "fell ill" in its sub-tropical indoor pool area.
