A SCHOOL had to call in fire crews to help save it from flooding after a neighbour reported water about to breach the school’s premises on Sunday.
Winscombe Primary School in Moorham Road had water building up outside two classrooms and its hall, leading the school to put out a call fire crews to help stop the building from flooding.
Crews were at the school for about an hour diverting water which had come from a nearby stream and flooded the school’s playing fields, putting up defences to stop any floodwater from coming in.
Headteacher Linda Grogan said: “It was millimetres away from getting in.
“I don’t know where we would have put two classes of children. It would have been quite a disaster.”
