An 11-year-old boy landed his dream job as a rollercoaster tester.

Adam Willsher beat off competition from 300 other schoolboys to land the role as a tester of the majority of the 60 rides at Paultons Park, Hampshire, southern England, after triumphing in an essay competition.

He spent a day at the park with his family going on the various rollercoasters and his opinions on the rides will be published on Paultons' online guide.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I really enjoyed the day and had a brilliant time going around the park with the operator and going on the rides.

"We walked around the rides and checked there were no obstacles and I wore a uniform that said 'Official Ride Tester.'

"I went on lots of different rides and my favourite one would have to be the Cobra rollercoaster because it was really fast and thrilling, I went on it three times."
