Duncan Connor, of the Bus Stop Toy Shop, who is one of the organisers said: "It is disappointing but it is the right decision - safety first and foremost is the most important thing. We are having to pull the plug tonight. The weather is getting worse. We have high hopes of being able to reschedule for some time next week . More news soon."
