A HEREFORDSHIRE primary school is closed today (Monday) due to having no water.

A burst water main in Bartestree has meant that Lugwardine Primary School has decided to not open. 

The affected area stretches to Somers Walk in Hereford to Hampton Bishop.

Welsh Water say its team is on the way to investigate, with the work estimated to be completed by 11.45am.


A spokesperson said: "Until the pipe is fixed, you may experience low pressure or no water. We expect all supplies to be fully restored by late morning.

"As a general rule, it should take about five seconds to fill a pint glass from the cold water tap in your kitchen.

"If you can run your cold kitchen tap, this will also help clear any discolouration in your supply."
