Students at a high school in mid Suffolk are stranded due to flooding caused by Storm Babet – and may have to stay overnight.

Buses home at Debenham High School were cancelled on Friday as it was deemed too unsafe to transport the students home. 

Two buses had to turn around and return the students to the school.

A teacher at the school confirmed about 150 students are stranded at the school alongside other members of staff. 

In an email sent to parents and carers, the school said: "Please be assured that should students not be able to get home we will of course stay at school with them for as long as it takes and this would include overnight if necessary". 

"We will work with the emergency centre based at the leisure centre to make sure we can keep students warm and fed for as long as they are at school".

"Please do not feel that you must collect you child, we are very happy to look after them at school until you feel it safe to pick the students up".

Earlier on Friday, several schools announced they would be closing because of the bad weather and flooding.
