Newtonhill Primary School was forced to close early today after a gas issue left the building without heating or hot water.

It is not known how long it will take for the issue to be resolved.

Head of Resources and Performance, Craig Clement, said: “An issue with the gas supply along the street from Newtonhill School has left the building without any heating, hot water or capacity to make school lunches.

“We’ve therefore taken the decision to close the school for the rest of the day and will update parents once the issue has been resolved.”
