A MOTHER has spoken of her horror as she watched her daughter plunge into a shallow stream after an accident at a popular North-East visitor attraction.
Janine Knight, and her daughter, Rachel, aged ten, were among 18 people involved in a crash at Diggerland, in Langley Park, near Durham.
The party was enjoying a ride in an articulated vehicle, driven by an 18-year-old worker, when it slid down a steep, 20-metre hill into the River Browney.
The group were wearing seatbelts and protected by a roll cage, but some suffered injuries when the trailer keeled over in the water.
