Nottinghamshire college students hurt by ceiling tiles

A Nottinghamshire College will not open on Friday after two students were hurt by falling plasterboard ceiling tiles.

The students from West Nottinghamshire College in Mansfield needed treatment for minor cuts on Thursday.

Neither were taken to hospital but principal Asha Kemkha decided to close the Derby Road campus as a "precautionary measure".

Students with exams should report to the college as normal and the nursery will remain open.

In a statement, the principal said: "We will be undertaking a thorough assessment of the situation over the weekend and will be making a further announcement... on Sunday 12 September."

All other college campuses remain open as usual.
