M&D’s ride ‘will not be scrapped’ after crash

M&D's Tsunami rollercoaster accident

The owners of M&D’s theme park have said that the Tsunami rollercoaster will not be scrapped following an accident which injured nine people.

The Pinfari-manufactured rollercoaster left its tracks on Sunday afternoon, crashing into a children’s ride.

M&D’s director Douglas Taylor has said that the ride will not be scrapped as a result of the accident, the Glasgow Evening Times reports.

The newspaper quoted him as saying simply “no” when asked if the ride would be scrapped following the incident.

However, with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and police jointly taking control of the ride as part of an investigation, it is not expected to be released for operation for a considerable time period.

Two boys suffered serious injuries and remain in hospital following the incident on Sunday.
