A school in the West Midlands where thieves caused damage put at £30,000 has reopened.

Loxdale Primary School, in Bilston, was broken into at midnight on Sunday 9 December 2012.

Lead from the roof and pipework were taken, which led to flooding in the school's offices and some classrooms.

Head teacher Trish Scott said that although the school is safe to reopen, there is still work being completed to repair the damage caused.
