Drawbridge collapse traps visitors in "fairy tale castle"

Fifty-one visitors to Castell Coch in Tongwynlais near Cardiff, Wales got more than they bargained for when a maintenance crane collapsed the castle's drawbridge, trapping the visitors inside. No one was injured.

The "prisoners" were entertained with a sword-fighting demonstration while repairs were made to the bridge.

Castell Coch was built in the late 19th century on the site of a 13th century Norman motte and bailey castle.
