A secondary school in Cambridgeshire has been forced to close for the day after a group of travellers moved on to the premises.
Several caravans arrived at Bottisham Village College near Newmarket last night.
The school has since released a statement saying that they'd been left with no choice but to close and added that they're liaising with police.
Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, we regret to inform you that Bottisham Village College will be closed on Friday 15th July and there will be no trips or other activities taking place. A large group from the travelling community moved onto parts of the college grounds. We are working closely with the local police to resolve the situation as swiftly as possible.
Given these circumstances, we have no choice but to close the college. For those parents expecting children back from residential trips, we will be in communication with you by 10:00am to tell you about details concerning collection.
It is very likely that students will be returned to and supervised by Bottisham staff until collected at an alternative location and we would suggest that you are prepared for this eventuality, as there will be no school buses running to return students home.
Could we thank you kindly in advance for your support and we shall endeavour to be in contact regularly over the coming hours using the college’s social media.

The government has approved four more free schools for the region.
They will be at Alconbury and Chatteris in Cambridgeshire, St Clements Hill in Norwich and Saffron Waldon in Essex.
They were part of announcement by outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron of 31 new free schools around the country.
Free schools have been at the heart of this government’s education reforms which have seen more than 1.4m more children in good or outstanding schools since 2010.
More than 300 have been created since I became Prime Minister and 200 are set to open meaning tens of thousands more young people, many from disadvantaged areas, finally have a choice of a good education that helps them reach their full potential.
I am proud of what this government has achieved, working with heads and teachers to raise standards so that our young people have the best possible start in life.

Some schools in our region will be closed or just partially open today because of a one day teaching strike.
The National Union of teachers is in a dispute over contracts and funding. The decision was criticised by the government in parliament yesterday.
"I'm sure that colleagues will condemn the strike action by the National Union of Teachers tomorrow which is both unnecessary and counter productive. It will harm children's education, inconvenience parents and damage the profession's reputation in the eyes of the public."
