Suspected gas leak at Combermere
A SUSPECTED GAS LEAK at the Combermere School in Waterford, St Michael has seen the entire student body and staff evacuated to the playing field closest to the Shooting Range.
Members of the Police Force and two people wearing fluorescent vests entered the compound after 9:30 a.m.
The media was denied access to the premises.
An attempt to ascertain what had happened from deputy principal Beverley Neblett-Lashley proved futile. She indicated they did not know more than what was visible, but declined to answer if it was normal procedure for the children to be on the pasture at that time.
Meanwhile an individual was spotted walking around the field holding aloft a piece of equipment. (KB)
