A UK couple practising a dance move from hit 1980s movie Dirty Dancing ahead of their wedding ended up knocking themselves unconscious.

Sharon Price and Andy Price were practising the famous lift move that appears at the end of the film when Mr Price failed to grab hold of his wife.

"I was concussed. I was out. I ended up in a neck brace and had to have a CT scan," Mr Price told BBC News.

"We were about 30ft apart and Sharon ran and I grabbed her hips, and the next thing we knew we were flat out."

The pair were taken to hospital but discharged six hours later.

They said they were rethinking their wedding dance in light of the mishap.
