Passengers on a Universal Studios’ rollercoaster in Japan were left stranded 15 metres in the air after a technical fault brought it to a sharp halt, the theme park has confirmed.
About 30 passengers were on the Flying Dinosaur ride as it was driving up a slope when a sensor went off and brought it to an emergency stop.
Universal Studios said no one was injured, but it would be investigating the cause of the incident.

The Flying Dinosaur was also reported to have broken down in May 2018, leaving 64 passengers suspended 100ft (30m) above the ground.
