Brighton's new British Airways i360 has reopened after closings its doors for two days for maintenance checks, after the attraction and events venue broke down twice in one week.

The iconic events venue and attraction, which opened on 4 August, was investigated after 200 people became stuck for more than one hour on the weekend, over a problem with its doors. It followed an earlier technical fault last Thursday, which saw passengers stranded mid-air for about two hours.

As a result, the venue closed for Monday and Tuesday this week before reopening on Wednesday. A spokeswoman said no event bookings had been affected.
