Eastleigh School Flooded In Heavy Rain

A Hampshire school's been clearing up after being flooded out by torrential rain.

Five classrooms at Cherbourg Primary were left under inches of water after drains became backed up and water came up through the sinks on early on Friday morning (November the 4th). It had to close for the day.

Head teacher Julie Grear told Heart:

"We've got the plumbers in and I think that's going to be quite a big outlay really. 

"My biggest worry is carpets because the main part of the building is 100 years old so we're looking at parquet flooring underneath".

The school will be open on Monday November the 7th, but the Year Sixes will have classes at a school down the road while the carpets are dried out.
