Debbie Burrell, organiser of the rink, said: 'We've had great success with the rink so far this year, with loads of skaters taking to the ice over the Christmas period.

'Even though the festivities are now over, the ice rink is still open and we'd love to see even more people join us in 2018 to kick off the new year in style.'

She added: 'We're urging people to book tickets online to save 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.'
