TV STAR Anna Ryder Richardson has defended a wildlife park she runs after it was fined £70,000 for health and safety breaches.

Manor House Wildlife Park, which the interior designer operates with husband Colin MacDougall, was fined at Swansea Crown Court last week after a child suffered serious head injuries at the west Wales attraction.

Gruff Davies-Hughes, three, was hit by a tree bough when it was blown down in strong winds in August 2010. The boy, from Llanelli, spent three days in intensive care. Speaking on 
ITV Daybreak yesterday, Ms Ryder Richardson said: “Nobody could have foreseen that that tree was going to come down, nobody.”
