A Norfolk school remains closed this morning due to heating oil being stolen and snow preventing a new delivery.

Reedham Primary School is the only school not to reopen today, after the vast majority shut for three days last week as the Beast from the East took hold.

But a message from the school said: “With the village being completely cut off due to the snow drifts, there remains no heating in school as our oil delivery never arrived over the weekend to replace the stolen oil. School will reopen tomorrow once the oil has been delivered, an engineer has restarted the boiler system and some heat is flowing through the school again.”

Three others schools were closed, these were:

• Great Dunham Primary School, where a pipe burst due to freezing temperatures.

• St Andrew’s Lopham CE VA Primary School, due to a burst water pipe.

• Walpole Cross Keys Primary School, where the heating was not working.
