BURNHAM-on-Sea's skating rink has closed today due to Storm Eleanor. 

Burnham Events Social Team (BEST), who manage and run the skating rink at Lynton Road car park, closed the rink as a precaution as Storm Eleanor was set to hit the county hard. 

Kathy Jones, chairman of BEST, said no damage has been done to the rink. 

"We decided to keep the skating rink closed today for safety," Kathy said. 

"It will be back open tomorrow."

The rink is open daily from 11am to 5pm until January 6 and costs £4 per person per hour.
