Alton Towers monorail reopens following accident

Alton Towers has re-opened its monorail transportation system following an accident nine days ago.

As previously reported, a train came to a sudden halt on 5 August, injuring several people on board.

The park said that the incident did not require the assistance of the emergency services and that an internal investigation would be carried out.

There have been unverified reports that the train came to a halt just prior to the section of track which switches to allow the addition or removal of garaged trains to the main circuit.

Trains were seen to be taking guests from the car parks to the theme park entrance gates as usual this morning.
