LATEST: West Ham pupils will return to school tomorrow after roof blaze

Children at fire-hit Gainsborough Primary School in West Ham are now set to return to school tomorrow following a blaze on Saturday morning.

Term time was due to begin yesterday but it was delayed because a number of checks had to be carried out to ensure the safety of pupils.

Earlier today Newham Council suggested that the school would partially re-open on Wednesday but this afternoon a spokesperson confirmed that pupils will return tomorrow.
