Legoland forced to close hotel by 'extremists'

Legoland will close its hotel this weekend after far-right extremists targeted the resort for agreeing to host a Muslim fun day.

Racial tension was stirred after more than 1,000 Muslim families were due to attend a private event at the resort in Windsor, Berkshire, this Sunday.

The attraction received threatening phone calls, emails and social media posts for being hired exclusively by the Muslim Research and Development Foundation.

Legoland decided to cancel the event following talks with the organisers and Thames Valley Police, and officials will shut the 150-room hotel this weekend.
