Guernsey students sent home over coronavirus fears

Students returning to Guernsey from a school trip in Northern Italy have been sent home over coronavirus concerns.

At least one child is showing relevant symptoms and is being tested for the virus.

A decision was made to send students at Guernsey's Grammar School home after Public Health England issued advice saying anyone who has visited the region to self isolate themselves.

The children had been on a ski trip to Piedmont during the February half term.

Everyone who was sent home will be contacted by Public Health Services for further advice.
