The River Don burst its banks late last night and there was an amber ‘danger to life’ warning in place as Sheffield battled the weather.

Bosses at Meadowhall Christmas Live announced at the last-minute that they would be cancelling the event, causing traffic chaos in the area.

Thousands of shoppers and workers were stranded at the shopping centre overnight with Meadowhall offering them a place to stay.
