A rescue operation is underway to airlift stranded visitors from a tower after a carriage malfunction left them stranded more than 100ft in the air.
Thirteen people trapped in the gondola of the Jurassic Skyline tower on Festival Pier, Weymouth are being winched to safety by a Coastguard helicopter.
The carriage malfunction before 4pm today, meaning those inside have been trapped for four hours.
Dramatic scenes from the popular tourist attraction show coastguard members descending down from the helicopter onto the carriage.
