Festive fun in Sunderland has been cut short today due to Storm Clodagh's arrival in the region.

Wind and rain have battered the city, forcing the city's Christmas Frost Village in Keel Square to close for the rest of today.

The ice rink, market and funfair will also be shut, as the weather conditions continue to be monitored.

The attractions opened to the public this week, with a grand unveiling of the rink on Thursday.
An online statement said: "Due to high winds we regret to inform everyone that the Frost Village including ice rink, market and funfair will be closed for the remainder of today.

"We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, however the health and safety of our visitors is a priority.

"The weather conditions will continue to be monitored and the site will reopen when it is safe to do so."
