A South Gloucestershire primary school's been forced to closed after dozens of children and teachers came down with norovirus.
Two Mile Hill School in Kingswood will be closed until Monday to allow for deep cleaning.
More than a dozen families are counting the cost of flood damage to their homes after last weeks water mains burst in Kingswood in South Gloucestershire. The main burst on Thursday afternoon in Fisher Road.
15 homes were flooded and 24,000 properties were left without water. The main has now been repaired and the damaged section sent for analysis to find out why it split.
Today insurance assessors arrived on site to examine the damage to flooded homes. But residents have been told it could be months before they can move back in. They will be fully recompensed as Bristol Water says it is liable and its insurers will meet incurred costs.
However, the thousands of other residents and businesses who were left without water for nearly two days won't get any compensation. It's only payable if the supply is cut off for more than 48 hours.
Chris Skidmore, MP for Kingswood has called for an inquiry review into the incident and says he will be supporting people in their compensation claims. He also says there's a risk of the same thing happening across Bristol:

The gas company Wales and West Utilities, says it has carried out necessary work to its gas pipe to allow Bristol Water to repair the damaged water mains in Kingswood.
Up to 9,000 people in South Gloucestershire are still without water after the incident last night.
Bristol Water says they hope to be able to fix the damage within 24 hours.
Bristol Water says they have not yet been able to start work on fixing the damaged main because it's not safe for their crews.
It says work being carried out to a nearby gas main has to be completed before Bristol Water workers can gain access to their site.
It means they are unable to reveal an estimated time for the works to be completed.
