After one or more people stole a roof-full of lead lining in Milton Keynes, the school affected has had to close.

The Charles Warren Academy in Simpson, MK, was targeted overnight Thursday, leaving the school no option but to close due to health and safety reasons.

It's been a double disappointment for the school today, on the last day of term, as they had also planned a large community event, which had to be cancelled.

Repairs could take up to six days to complete, but the school has told Heart it'll work hard to be open in time for Monday week and the start of the new school term.
