A Herefordshire school will remain closed on Friday, due to a road closure being in place outside its entrance.

The Westfield site in Leominster, will remain closed on Friday, due to ongoing sewage issues in the area. 

An update provided to parents this afternoon said:

“The Westfield site will remain closed on January 26th due to ongoing remedial work outside the school requiring road closure. 

“Until the fault with the drain is fixed, the clean-up operation cannot begin. 

“This is a very unfortunate situation for which all parties apologise, but we have to ensure a safe, sanitised site for our young people and staff. 

“We intend to fully re-open on Monday 29th January.”
