Flooded classrooms to remain shut at Bristol school

Part of a Bristol school will remain closed when the new term starts after severe flooding caused by frozen pipes.

Limes Nursery School and Children's Centre in Johnson Road, Whitehall, is due to open on 5 January, but two of its five classrooms are said to be badly damaged by water.

Children who use the annexe buildings will be able to start back as normal.

But nursery pupils using the house classrooms have been told they will be unable to return until 17 January.

The school said that any education time lost during this period would be made up during holiday breaks.

Head teacher Diana Weston said: "We are all devastated by this unfortunate incident, caused by the extreme weather.

"We hope that our contingency plan will cause the minimum amount of impact to children and families."
