Around 18 people have been hurt after a roof partially collapsed at a holiday park in Somerset.

It's thought a heating vent fell from the ceiling shortly before 6.30 last night at Pontins Brean Sands Holiday Park in Burnham-on-Sea. 

The park has been extra busy this week, with families visiting to spend time together during the half term break. 

The ambulance service say 6 people were taken to hospital, while Avon and Somerset Police confirmed that the Health and Safety Executive has been informed.
