Asbestos in Schools

Asbestos-hit school forced to close to keep pupils safe

Asbestos in Schools,

THE school at the centre of an asbestos scare is to close on safety grounds.

Pupils will not return to Sutherland Primary Academy, in Blurton, following the October half-term break.

It follows new safety advice which warns there is the 'potential of a major asbestos fall' from the ceilings.

Instead talks are being held to try to find an alternative site elsewhere in Stoke-on-Trent for the school.
