Three pupils from Springwood High School in King's Lynn were sent home last week and one told to self-isolate after falling ill following a skiing trip to Austria.

They were part of a group of 28 students and three staff from the school who visited the country two weeks ago on a half-term trip.

A coronavirus test on one pupil has come back negative.
