People were evacuated from Meadowhall earlier this evening due to a false alarm.

Shoppers posting on Twitter and Facebook initially posted that there had been a fire near Primark.

But a Meadowhall spokesperson confirmed the evacuation was due to a 'false alarm' and there had been no fire.

Customers and staff were allowed back in to the shopping centre shortly afterwards.
