Flooding drama temporarily closes Burnham-On-Sea Infants School

Burnham-On-Sea Infants School has been temporarily closed due to flooding over the weekend.

Water gushed out of a faulty boiler system along corridors, leaving 2-3 inches of standing water throughout the building, as pictured here.

Staff at the school started a clean-up operation on Monday morning (May 21st) in an attempt to open the school later this week.

Headteacher Janet Sadiq told "It was quite a shock to see the water everywhere this morning - it's not been a good start to the week."

"Water had been coming out of a pipe all weekend, causing flooding throughout the building."

She added that the school will remain closed on Tuesday (May 22nd) but it is hoped it will re-open later this week. More details on to follow.
