The first ever Nerf Battle took place at the mall on Saturday night, with its hallways transformed into a combat area.

Participants took cover behind tables, wheely bins and promotional pods, took aim, and fired away.

The event was put on after a promotion by toy store, The Entertainer, sparked the idea.

Robert Bradley, centre manager, said the Nerf event - the guns fire foam 'bullets' - was a great success.

'We are always looking to have fun and give people another reason to visit Castle Mall. The Entertainer were promoting their Nerf products and we thought it would be a great idea to have a battle in the mall.

'The initial battle was limited to 14 people to see how it worked.
