Pupils at a Scarborough school had to be sent home today because it was hit by a power cut.

The electricity went off at Hackness School at about 9.05am and it was finally restored at 1.55pm.

A school spokeswoman said everything was now back to normal and it would be business as usual tomorrow.

She added: “We sent the children home in the late morning because we couldn’t cook their lunches. We had no heating or lighting.”
