A primary school is closed for a third day as it recovers from flood damage.

Costessey Primary School, in Three Mile Lane, Costessey, is closed again today [Wednesday, October 9] as it is still without power following damage caused during Sunday's heavy rain.

Posting a notice on the school's Facebook page on Tuesday, Katie Lawson, the school principal, said: "Despite [engineers] best efforts, we are still without power.

"We are awaiting further parts and a considerable amount of work is still needed to reconnect the power supply to the school.

"As a result we are saddened to inform you that the school will remain closed tomorrow (Wednesday, October 9).
