The i360 got stuck again this evening with almost 200 passengers on board for more than an hour before engineers resolved the problem.
The pod was stationary for about an hour just above ground level, with one frustrated passenger tweeting pictures from inside.
A technical fault has again been blamed, but those stuck inside could at least take advantage of the camping toilet, which has already been taken out, with a tent put up around it.

In a statement posted on social media at about 10pm, i360 management said: “British Airways i360 was affected by a technical fault this evening.
“Passengers disembarked and our on-site engineers are correcting the fault to enable operations to resume tomorrow.
“We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to customers and will offer those affected a full refund for their visit and a complimentary ticket to return another time.”
Last time the pod got stuck, for two and a half hours on Thursday evening, the camping toilet was not brought out until just after the pod started moving again.
This time, the pod was stuck for just over an hour, from 5.20pm to 6.30pm.
