Alton Towers has defended one of its rides after a mother said the force of the ride caused her daughter's wrists to break. Amelia Seiga, 12, from Colwyn Bay, north Wales was treated for sprained wrists after going on the newly-opened Rita, Queen of Speed ride in April. Her mother, Jane Seiga, said x-rays taken a week later showed fractures in both wrists.
