CHILDREN at a primary school were evacuated and sent home for the day amid fears of a suspected gas leak.

The emergency took place at Chichester’s Portfield Primary Academy, in St James’ Road.

The academy is currently empty as gas engineers investigate the issue.

A spokeswoman from the primary confirmed the possible leak had been discovered in the school’s boiler room this morning and that they would almost certainly reopen on Monday.
