A PRIMARY school in Colchester has closed following a small gas leak with lessons now going online.

Hamilton Primary School on Constantine Road has closed this morning after a gas leak was found.

Online activities will be sent to parents and carers via email while the school waits for repairs. 

The news was announced this morning. 

Update: Hamilton Primary School will open as normal tomorrow after a gas engineer recommissioned the boilers while providing a gas safety certificate earlier today.
