Chulmleigh Community College replaces 'temporary' huts

A school in Devon which had temporary teaching huts for more than 60 years has been celebrating its permanent replacement.

Chulmleigh Community College got its first temporary huts in 1945 but they have now been replaced by a new building.

As late as 2006, about 60% of the teaching was still carried out in 17 temporary classrooms.

The new school building will be officially opened in September.
