A SCHOOL in Brightlingsea is closed today following a gas leak.

The Colne Community School and College, in Church Road, has told students not to attend school following the incident.

They will instead be learning remotely from home, as they did during the Covid-19 lockdown.

A message on the school’s website said: “The Colne Community School is closed on Friday, October 15, due to a gas leak.

"Students need to revert to remote learning using Google Classroom, following their normal timetable."
