Unfortunately, drivers often park illegally on footpaths and similar areas around the arena and Meadowhall retail park areas when there are arena events.

Fan Louis Tomlinson wrote on Twitter: "Still getting over the fact my beloved Donny Rovers sacked Paul Dickov! Silly silly decision! Unfair to judge him with the poor budget given!"

Louis Tomlinson is reportedly expecting a child with a Los Angeles-based stylist following a brief relationship. According to reports in both the People Magazine and The Sun, the 23-year-old One Direction star from Doncaster is set to become a parent with his close friend Briana Jungwirth.

A mutual friend of the pair insists that while Louis and the stylist aren't in a relationship, the singer will be a 'hands-on dad' when their baby arrives early next year.

Meanwhile a publicist representing the singer has refused to comment on the newspaper claims that he is to become a father. Asked by ITV News to respond to the claims, a representative said: "No comment". The band are currently touring the United States and are due to play in Seattle tomorrow. If true, it would make Tomlinson the first member of the band to become a father.
