A primary school in Chippenham had to remain closed this morning (September 13) due to not having any running water.

By Brook Valley C of E Primary School in Yatton Keynell had no water this morning. Wessex Water have since rerouted the water supply as a temporary fix, but the school will remain closed for the rest of today.

A spokesman for By Brook Valley Primary School said: "We think it was due to the weather last night. We had to take a decision, obviously because we have a breakfast club and due to health and safety issues, with no water for toilets or handwashing or cooking.

"Wessex Water have given us a temporary supply of water but they are still working on the problem so we are remaining closed."

The school is expected to be open as normal tomorrow (September 14).
