A SCHOOL in Flackwell Heath was forced to close this morning after a water main burst.

Juniper Hill School, in Churchill Close, had to close the school today for health and safety reasons after the water to the school was shut off.

The school are now hoping ‘urgent maintenance’ will fix the issue and they can open as normal on Monday.

A message on the school website said: “We have a burst water main and have had to shut off the water to the school.

“. For the obvious health and safety reasons we cannot open. We hope to be open on Monday morning as usual.

“If this changes we will contact parents via the text system and put a message on here. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.”
