A MAN and two children were injured on one of the water rides at Center Parcs.

Wiltshire Council has launched an investigation as the BBC reported that the man and his nephew, 12, and niece, 13, were hurt on the Tropical Cyclone ride at the holiday firm's site in Longleat 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".

The BBC went on to report 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.
