A theme park in Japan has closed a skating rink featuring frozen fish after receiving complaints that it was being "disrespectful" to animals.

Space World, in the southern city of Kitakyushu, had opened its aquarium-themed attraction earlier on November 2016.

Skaters could glide over 5,000 fish frozen in the rink's ice.

The park has since encountered a barrage of criticism online, and has apologised. It also said the fish were already dead when they were frozen.

A statement on Space World's website said: "We have received a lot of opinions such as 'Using animals as entertainment and in events is bad' and 'Poor fish'. We sincerely apologise."
