At least seven children injured after slide collapses at funfair

Seven children are being treated for “potentially serious injuries” after an inflatable slide is believed to have collapsed at a fireworks funfair, medics have said.

Surrey Police said Woking Park was evacuated as medics, including an air ambulance crew, treated the children on Saturday.

The force initially said it was a collapse of a helter skelter at the fairground in Woking, but the latest information said it was a “giant inflatable slide”.

South East Coast Ambulance Service said it had “multiple crews” at the scene of the “significant incident”.

“Our clinicians have treated seven children on scene for potentially serious injuries,” Seacamb said in a statement.

The patients were being transported to “major trauma centres” in London with the help of the air ambulance, the statement added.

Woking Fireworks said: “We are all very shocked and distressed by events in the funfair this evening.

“We are focusing in assisting the emergency services in dealing with the injured children.

“Our thoughts are with the children and their families at the moment.”
