PART of a shopping centre was closed off after high winds caused concern.
Managers at Dalton Park, in Murton, decided to shut off access to part of its main walkway and a series of shops at about 1pm yesterday after high gusts prompted safety worries.
The section closed off stretched from Collectables Cookware to Millies Cookies.
A contractor was called out to carry out checks, with the mall reopened after about an hour.
A spokesman said: “We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
