Shoppers and workers were evacuated from Meadowhall in an emergency drill.
Yesterday’s routine evacuation exercise was organised by bosses to ensure all emergency procedures work, should there ever be an incident at the shopping centre.
A Meadowhall spokeswoman said: “In line with standard health and safety practices an evacuation drill took place at Meadowhall.
“Business as usual resumed immediately after the drill.
“Thank you to everyone for their patience.”
