A school has been closed today due to a lack of water supply.

Staff and pupils of St Antony's Catholic Primary School in Mornington Road, Woodford Green were forced to leave the school at 11am today due to a problem with a valve.

Redbridge council said it was working with Thames Water to fix the problem.

A statement from Thames Water said: “We’re sorry to customers who experienced problems with their water supply this morning caused by an issue with a valve on our water pipe. Our team worked quickly to fix the problem which was resolved at midday.”
