Debris including some of the gifts children received and packets from the cheap-looking Father Christmas costumes littered the floor of the cancelled Winter Wonderland event as it was being dismantled.
A mother who took her little girl to the Winter Wonderland event for her birthday described it as a "shambles".
Lauren Smith told ITV's Daybreak: "It was a complete disappointment. We brought my daughter here for her birthday, expecting this spell-bounding and amazing, captivating experience that the website describe.
"It was a few toys, a few games, dogs in a little pen - I didn't see any reindeers - a santa's grotto that wasn't open and a tiny little ice rink that we couldn't skate around on."
Three people were stabbed after a fight broke out at a Swedish House Mafia concert at the Milton Keynes Bowl last night.
According to Thames Valley Police, one of the victims, a 23-year-old man from the West Midlands area, remains in Milton Keynes General Hospital with a punctured lung. Another, a 24-year-old man, also from the West Midlands, received a cut to his head and arm but has been discharged from hospital.
A 23-year-old man was treated for minor injuries by St John Ambulance crew. Police say it appeared to be an isolated incident. They want to speak to a man described as white, aged in his early 20s, wearing a blue Nike T-shirt, a black jacket and black jogging bottoms in connection with the assault.
