Five schools in Northamptonshire are closed today due to a burst water main.

Problems with the water supply in the Finedon and Irthlingborough area this morning has led to the closure of Finedon Infant School, Finedon Mulso CEVA Junior School, Huxlow Science College, Irthlingborough Junior School and Irthlingborough Nursery and Infant School.

The two schools in Finedon have said they will text parents when the water is back on and they are able to re-open.

A spokesman for Anglian Water said: “We have a burst water main in the area unfortunately.

“We are working on it now and are hoping to get the water supply back by 1pm today.”
