No money to rebuild Blackpool special needs school

Children at a special needs school in Blackpool have been speaking of their sadness after losing out on money for a new building.

High Furlong School in Blackpool suffers from a number of problems, such as corridors not wide enough for wheelchairs to pass each other and a lack of adequate heating in some areas.

It was hoped that a new school would be built through the scrapped Building Schools for the Future programme, but pupils will now have to wait and see if any funds will be made available.
