Located in Castle Mall Gardens, the rink is open from 10am to 9pm daily, with the last skate session starting at 8pm.

Sessions last for 45 minutes, with a further 15 minutes designated for changing shoes.

Debbie Burrell, organiser of the rink, said: 'The ice rink has once again proved to be a great success with loads of skaters taking to the ice.

'The Christmas period was particularly popular, but even though the festivities are now over, the rink is still open and we'd love to see even more people join us in January.'

She added: 'We're urging people to book tickets online to save any disappointment. A lot of people have travelled in, only to turn up and be disappointed because they have been turned away.'

Sophie Urry works for the ice rink. She said: 'For health and safety reasons, we can only have a certain number of people on the ice at one time. We take 100 people every hour.'
