Ian said:She's still got This Morning and the Daily Mirror to do before her regular haunts are done. It won't the last we hear of her either, because she's being constantly told by her Twitter followers how brave and inspirational she is, therefore she's helping others. It's all rather cringeworthy now. TBH, even though I want this to shut down, I'd rather hear what Leah and Joe have to say about it because they're normal people, not craving attention or doing anything to stay in the public eye, they're simply getting on with their lives.
Dear Sir / Madam.
This article indicates that a major incident occurred at the park and indeed they have stated the "THIRD in just over a year".
Further on down the article an Alton Towers spokesperson states....
"Alton Towers confirmed the Spinball Whizzer - which rotates 360 degrees at high speed - was stopped at 1pm today after a guest entered a 'strictly prohibited' area"
Therefore the cause of the problem was not mechanical, but a "guest" of the park who had entered a restricted area.
Therefore this news story suggests that Alton Towers is unsafe, whereas this new article is actually about a guest of the park who broke safety rules and entered an area they shouldn't have and therefore the operators shut down the ride as they saw this guest who had entered a restricted area (even though there are signs saying do not enter).
This is therefore a misleading story and the Daily Mail should offer a retraction due to the damaging nature of this story against Alton Towers.
