Refund for Christmas parties cancelled by fire

Christmas parties cancelled because of a large fire near the venue can be reorganised in the new year - or organisers will be given a full refund.

The Magna centre in Rotherham had to cancel events at the weekend as firefighters tackled a blaze involving 2,000 tonnes of plastic at the former Sterecycle (Rotherham) Ltd plant.

A spokesman for Magna said apologised for the disappointment and said that full refunds would be made or that people could re-arrange and have a party in January instead.

The cause of the fire will be investigated.
