Exeter pre-school closed over asbestos discovery

A building used by a play-group in Exeter has been closed following the discovery of asbestos.

Devon County Council was told by council inspectors that the asbestos in Centre Exe could cause problems in the future if the building deteriorates.

The council said it was working with the pre-school to re-locate the group.

A council statement said: "Our prime consideration when managing premises is the health and safety of people, particularly vulnerable groups."
