More than 20 Cambridgeshire schools are closed, partially closed or about to close after taking “precautionary measures” over the coronavirus pandemic.

Cambridgeshire County Council published the list, noting that measures taken by schools are all on a “case-by-case” basis.

A council spokesman said: “Some have closed for cleaning after advice given by the NHS, some have partial closures as only part of the school is affected, and others have been affected by teacher absences.”
