Ironbridge school closed due to flooding
A school in the Ironbridge Gorge is closed to children today after buildings flooded.
Parents were informed this morning that Coalbrookdale & Ironbridge Church of England Primary School is shut today.
Those ringing the school's landline this morning received a recorded message which said: "Friday, December 6. Due to flooding in the school buildings we are closed today to children.
"All updates to parents will be sent via [student platform] Seesaw and the website."
Today is the day that the four pink cooling towers of the disused Ironbridge Power Station, which lies less than a mile from the school, are due to be demolished.
An exclusion zone around the towers has been established for the controlled demolition at about 11am.
