A roller coaster carriage at a theme park in Scotland came off its rails on Sunday and fell 30ft (10 metres) onto a children's ride below injuring around seven people, the Daily Record newspaper reported.

The Daily Record cited eyewitness reports saying the carriage, carrying ten people, on the Tsunami ride at the M&D's theme park in Motherwell in southern Scotland flew off the rails as it turned a corner and plummeted to the ground.

It cited a police statement saying "approximately seven people" had been injured.

A spokeswoman for local police said they were responding to an emergency incident at the park but could not give any further details.

The Scottish ambulance service said six ambulance crews, a special operations response team and a team of emergency doctors had been sent to the park to respond to the incident. They had no details of casualties.

Pictures on Twitter showed people trying to help those trapped in an upside down carriage. M&D did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
