Council accused of 'ruining Christmas'

A council in Essex has been accused of ruining Christmas after ordering a festive attraction to close down over safety fears.

  • Serena Sandhu visited the attraction and sent us this report.

The Christmas Wonderland in Clacton-on-Sea comes with a Santa's grotto and train rides, but unfortunately no planning permission.

It's proved so popular the council says the local roads can't cope with the increase in traffic. But the event organisers are determined to stay open.
