A school in mid Cornwall flooded with raw sewage says the cost of the damage will reach more than £5,000.

A blown sewer cover at Bishop Bronscombe Primary School in St Austell led to newly-refurbished classrooms being affected.

The school was forced to close its infants' classes while classrooms and corridors were cleaned and dried out.

Head teacher Adrian Massey said investigative work into the reason for the flooding would "incur more costs".
