A school in Calderdale which has been closed since last year's Boxing Day floods will re-open today.

Scout Road Academy in Mytholmroyd has been shut since the hillside started to slide under the force of floodwater.

Asbestos was discovered in a disused tip uncovered when the floods caused the landslip.

That meant that pupils at the school have been taught elsewhere, while work to remove asbestos took place.
