Oh, chute! 125ft slide linking streets in Spain closes after riders hurt


A 38m (125ft) slide linking two streets in a southern Spanish town has been closed – a day after it opened for the first time.

Residents reported suffering injuries while riding the steel chute in Estepona on the Costa del Sol, which was designed to save people from a 10-minute walk.

Videos posted on social media showed people hurtling down the slide and flying off at the end.

On Twitter, one woman claimed she suffered grazes while using the chute, writing: “The slide in Estepona is s***, seen and tested. I’ve hurt myself everywhere.

“I flew two metres and the cops started laughing.
