After going almost three weeks without the internet, children and staff at a primary school are finally able to browse the web.

Aldborough Primary School first noticed they were disconnected when they came back after the Christmas holidays.

The school had a problem with provider BT Openreach when a cable to the school was damaged by a storm.

With help from ICT Solutions at Norfolk County Council, the school got in contact with BT, which was unavailable to comment, to get a solution to the problem.

Finally on January 22, 17 days after first noticing, the school has their internet back up and running.

On that same day, they also briefly went without a phone line before both problems were then resolved.

The school were originally informed that BT needed to get permission to close a road to dig a hole, which could have seen the lack of internet running until February, but fortunately this was not the case.
