Three schools in Clevedon will reopen today (Monday) following the water contamination problems suffered in recent days.

Clevedon School, plus Mary Elton and St John’s primary schools, were shut on Friday after a sickness bug was detected by Bristol Water in the town’s tap water supply.

The schools decided it would be best to close as a precaution.

Bristol Water had asked customers to boil water before using it since Thursday but the ban has been lifted.
