A SOUTH Cumbria school has announced it will close tomorrow, owing to a gas leak.

Due to the incident, the Lakes School in Windermere will be closed to all year groups on Wednesday, September 9.

The South Lakes school said its site would remain closed tomorrow while further investigation and repair works are under way.

It has not yet been confirmed when the school will reopen.
