ONE of the few schools across the county which was able to open today has been forced to close - because of a power cut.

Children turned up for school as usual at Henley Primary, but then a tree brought down a power line, leaving the school with no electricity.

A county council spokeswoman said: “EDF estimate it could be three hours before power is restored.

“Parents can collect their children and the school will remain open until all children are collected.”
