A 23-year-old man from Essex who broke his neck after an accident at a Spanish water park is having surgery, his family has told Radio 1 Newsbeat.

David Briffaut could be left paralysed after going on the Splash ride at Aqualandia in Benidorm.

His uncle Mark Pooley said: "David is a wonderful young man who was enjoying an innocent day out with his girlfriend."

Aqualandia said it's "very sad about what happened" but added: "The park is not responsible for the accident."
