Montsaye Academy in Rothwell has sent pupils home after a power failure forced the school to close.

The school in Greening Road was affected by a power cut last night, which also forced the adjacent sports centre to close early.

A message to parents this morning read: “Due to a significant power failure students will be dismissed from school after period one at 9.50am for health and safety reasons.

“Buses have been arranged.”
