OpenSAML.MetadataProvider.XML : exception loading remote resource : Invalid child element

I'm trying to set up a SP but I'm getting an error when trying to load a remote XML resource (see the shibd.log below). According to the federation hosting the metadata, it is nothing wrong with the XML-file as it validates. Is there something I have missed in my Shibboleth configuration or is the metadata in fact invalid?

The metadata can be found at
