Kielder Winter Wonderland has been shut due to flooding of the surrounding area. The road between Bellingham and Kielder was judged impassable leaving access to the site limited.

Today would have been the last day the site was open. Organisers say they have emailed and texted those due to attend and are contacting customers about refunds.

At around 6am we became aware that the rainfall was very heavy. Between 6 and 7am the water river rose by around a metre.

Its our last day so we are hugely disappointed but health and safety is our priority."
