Newick Church of England Primary School is closed today (Wednesday January 23) as it has no heating.

A spokesperson said there was a major gas leak yesterday evening and engineers have been unable to fix the problem.

They are due to return today but this has left the school with no heating or hot water.

“Due to sub zero temperatures tonight the building will be too cold tomorrow,” the spokesperson said.

“Engineers have told us it will take until at least lunchtime to fix.”
