A primary school in West Norfolk has been forced to close its doors after heavy rain caused damage to the roof. 

Wimbotsham & Stow Academy, near Downham Market, revealed this morning that pupils would have to stay at home, as the damage has caused leaks in several parts of the building. 

The roof is set to be assessed and repaired later today. 

It's not yet known if the school will be able to re-open tomorrow.
