Have your say

A car park near Roundhay Park has been closed after heavy rainfall caused waterlogging - a day before Ed Sheeran's huge open air concerts.

The Red Hall car park was going to be used as a 'park and walk' car park for the concerts on Friday and Saturday.

It was announced today that the car park is no longer in use due to waterlogging.

The park and walk will now take place at a car park in Gipton, near Fearnville Leisure centre.

It is around a 25 minute walk to Roundhay Park from the new location.
