An eight-year-old girl has died from her injuries after strong winds blew a jumping castle several metres into the air during a fair in eastern Spain, local authorities say.

Spanish news agency EFE reported that another eight children were injured, including some that needed hospital treatment.

The town hall of Mislata said it was holding a minute of silence to honour the victim of the accident that occurred late on Tuesday.

Mislata is a municipality that borders with the city of Valencia on Spain's eastern coast.

Last month five children died in Australia after falling from a jumping castle in Tasmania that was lifted into the air by a gust of wind.
