Meadowhall has revealed why its outdoor play area was closed this morning.

A parent tweeted Meadowhall to say it was ‘ridiculous’ that the shopping centre had shut the outdoor play area due to icy conditions.

The parent added that there ‘wasn’t a bit of ice on there’ but there were ‘lots of disappointed children’.

A spokesperson for Meadowhall said: “The play area was closed for health and safety reasons due to weather conditions but it has now re-opened.”
