A Royston school is closed today due to a gas leak.

Icknield Walk First School in Poplar Drive announced the closure on its website earlier this morning.

A spokesman for the county council said: “There was a smell of gas in the school when staff arrived so the supply was switched off as a precaution.

“As a consequence there is no heating and the school has been closed. Engineers will be investigating the problem today and it is hoped to open as usual tomorrow. Parents will be kept informed.”
