Two schools in Jersey will remain closed today due to strong gales damaging the roof.
Children were sent home from Haute Vallée School and Mont a l’Abbé Secondary School in St Helier yesterday after Storm Ines caused 'disturbance to the roofing fabric' of the building.
Mont a l’Abbé Secondary will remain closed today (Friday 14 February) and Haute Vallée will be closed to students in years 7, 8 and 9. Year 10 and 11 students will be taught in an area which has not been affected.

Yesterday, pupils and staff in the affected part of the building had to be moved to the school's sport hall and theatre to 'provide protection from flying debris'. Those at Mont a l’Abbé Secondary School were advised to stay indoors.
All students and staff were then sent home for safety reasons.
In a statement, the Children, Young People, Education and Skills Department thanked parents and carers for their understanding.
