The House of Horrors attraction at Tayto Park in Co Meath is to reopen.

An investigation was launched after nine people were taken to hospital following a stairs collapse at the amusement park.

Wooden stairs gave way at the popular adventure centre in Ashbourne during a Halloween-themed after-dark event last weekend.

It is estimated there were around 25 people on the stairs at the time.

Tayto Park insisted proper supervision was in place.

The park reopened the day after and it was confirmed the attraction would reopen on Friday evening.

A spokeswoman said: "Tayto Park has fulfilled all requirements as outlined by the relevant authorities."
