Poole primary school reopens after sickness bug
A primary school that was forced to close twice in less than a week because of a sickness bug has reopened.
Turlin Moors Community School in Poole, Dorset, first shut on Wednesday.
It reopened on Thursday but children "started dropping like flies again", said a spokeswoman for the school, which has pupils aged from four to 11.
It was closed for a second time on Friday and reopened on Tuesday morning in order to allow a "deep clean" to take place, she said.
The spokeswoman added it was "difficult to tell" how many pupils had been affected by the outbreak, which started on about 2 December.
