A sports centre in Warsop has been closed with ‘immediate effect’ because of fire safety issues.

Mansfield District Council have released a statement to say Meden Sports Centre has been closed so urgent work can be carried out on the Burns Lane site.

A spokesman said: “The district and county councils have jointly decided that the centre should close with immediate effect to assess what works are required.

“The county council is looking at alternative options to make sure sporting activities usually held at the centre for Meden School pupils can continue in the meantime and the district council is working with Mansfield District Leisure Trust to minimise any impact on community use.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
