A Newcastle-under-Lyme School has flooded after a burst central heating pipe, the Stoke Sentinel has reported.
Firefighters were called to the school in the Mount Pleasant area at 6am today (27 November) after an alarm was set off. When they entered the building, they discovered the premises had been flooded.
The flood occurred after joints in the pipe disconnected. Water flooded a biology lab in the Stinton building, which had been refurbished in September at a cost of £25,000.
A spokesperson from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue said crews are expected to remain on site for another hour.
The school remains open despite the flooding.
