Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

The Birmingham Mail have also descended into Gutter Journalism, for some reason they are trying to compare 30 minor accidents mostly non ride related that have occurred at Alton Towers in the past 3 years with last weeks incident. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/thirty-accidents-a...
