Far-right extremists in the UK have forced a popular theme park to close this coming weekend after they threatened the park for allowing a private group to hold a party there for Muslim children.
Legoland Winsor will close its doors after the police advised them to cancel the event due to threats made by members of the English Defence League and other groups.
The Muslim Research and Development Foundation was due to hold a private event at the park, but have now been refunded after the park expressed concern for the safety of its staff.
“Sadly, a private event due to take place on Sunday has had to be cancelled due to threats from right-wing groups made against the resort,” said Legoland in a statement. “The whole resort, including the hotel, will be closed for the weekend.
“We wholeheartedly understand families' disappointment that they will be unable to attend and appreciate that due to the dynamic nature of this situation we haven't been able to give them more notification,” the statement added.
The event has been planned for Sunday.Last Mod: 06 Mart 2014, 13:05
