Visitors rescued from castle

People dressed up as soldiers swordfighting

More than 50 visitors have been rescued after getting trapped in an old 'fairytale' castle when the drawbridge collapsed on Wednesday afternoon.

They were spending the day at Castell Coch near Cardiff in Wales.

A big piece of machinery drove onto the drawbridge and made it collapse, and there was no other way out.

While the fire services worked out how to rescue the visitors, the staff there kept them entertained with a special swordfighting display!
