Another East Lancashire high school has been forced to close after a member of staff tested positive for coronavirus.

At 8pm on Monday, St Augustine's RC High School in Billington announced on its website that it would be closed until further notice.

The closure comes after it was confirmed that a member of staff, who was present in the school on Friday, had contracted the virus.

The site is now closed for all pupils and staff.

A statement on the school's website read: "Following a confirmed case of Covid-19 (member of staff who was present in school on Friday), we have closed the site.

"No pupils or staff will be allowed to attend until further notice."

Elsewhere, Shuttleworth College on Burnley Road in Padiham, which was forced to shut its doors last week due to the coronavirus has reopened.

The school was closed for a day on Friday for a deep clean but opened again on Monday morning for a small number pupils, the children of key worker kids and vulnerable youngsters.

A second East Lancashire school - St John Fisher and St Thomas More Roman Catholic High School, in Colne, remains closed after a staff member tested positive for Covid-19.

The Gibfield Road secondary is currently being given a deep clean.
