Two schools in Norfolk have had to temporarily close today due to problems with water.
St Andrew's Primary Academy in Swaffham is suffering issues with its hot water system, and will reopen on Friday.
A message posted on its website states: 'No hot water system and school cannot be adequately cleaned, and food preparation cannot be undertaken.'
The school, on South Pickenham Road, has been closed since yesterday.
Meanwhile, Flitcham Primary Academy, near King's Lynn, has no water due to a burst pipe in the nearby village Dersingham.
