A PRIMARY school in Bracknell has been forced to close following an outbreak of a sickness bug.

Wildridings Primary School, in Netherton, has taken the decision to close tomorrow (Friday) after a number of children and staff came down with a vomiting bug this week.

A spokesperson for the school said: "We haven't taken this decision lightly, but we feel it is in the best interests of the children and the staff to close the school for the day."

A cleaning company will attend the school tomorrow in a bid to eradicate the bug.

The school is expected to re-open on Monday.
