Flooding clean-up begins at Somerset primary school
2:00pm Thursday 12th July 2012 in News
A PRIMARY school in Somerset is counting the cost after it had to be evacuated following severe flooding.
Bowlish Infants School in Shepton Mallet was evacuated while many homes in Croscombe also flooded.
The River Sheppey burst its banks flooding a pub and nearby homes in the centre of the village.
The heavy rain also forced the A371 to be closed between Shepton Mallet and Wells.
Somerset County Council sent a structural engineer to inspect a wall near Bowlish Infants School which is holding back flood water.
The school remained closed today (July 12) as a precaution.
