Christmas Village shut due to Storm Caroline

The Christmas Village on Broad Street

A festive village in Aberdeen will be closed today as a result of Storm Caroline.

The Christmas Village on Broad Street will be shut all day due to fears high winds could pose a risk to the public.

A statement from organisers Aberdeen Inspired said: ““Due to adverse conditions predicted for Thursday, December 7, the Christmas Village will be closed until 5pm.

“It will then be assessed for re-opening and an announcement will be made.

“The safety and care of the public is our priority. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.”

However, a market set to host independent vendors inside the quad of Marischal College from 6pm will still go ahead tonight.
