A Wearside primary school is closed this morning after a boiler house flood.

Pupils at Shiney Row Primary School in Rear South View, Shiney Row, Houghton, were given an unexpected day off today.

A flood in the boiler house cut the boilers off leaving the school in the cold.

Headteacher Paul Ashton said: "We're waiting for it to be assessed but we're confident that we'll be back open by tomorrow."
