A spokesman said on Friday afternoon: "During high winds branches, and in some cases whole trees, can fall so for your safety please refrain from entering the forest.

"We anticipate we will be able to open later in the day once we have carried out necessary safety checks.

"We will update our social media if we are able to reopen. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
