There are signs in Christchurch Park next to the Wilderness Pond and park bosses stressed that everyone should keep away from the ponds, especially during this icy spell.

A spokesman said: “It might look like fun, but ponds can be a hazard and we do want to avoid any accidents.

“We want everyone to stay safe and also to be careful on icy paths.”
