FOUR PEOPLE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL AFTER FAIRGROUND RIDE FAILS IN SOUTH LONDON

Lambeth country show, which is one of the “biggest free family festivals in the UK”, took an unexpected turn on their 50th anniversary. An unfortunate incident took place on Saturday June 8th at roughly 6:20pm at the Lambeth country show in Brockwell park. The four people taken to the hospital were a man and woman in their 40s, a man in their 50s and an 11-year-old girl after a funfair ride malfunctioned. 

Police have stated that none of the injured were believed to be in life threatening conditions and that they were awaiting full hospital assessments. It has been reported that one of the fairground rides could be seen covered in tarpaulin on Sunday morning, although it was not clear which ride had malfunctioned. 

Additional safety checks were being carried out on all rides and attractions at the show, Lambeth Council said and that the Lambeth country show is scheduled to continue from 1pm on June 9th but the funfair rides at the show will be impacted by closures to allow a full investigation.
