There will be celebration for staff and pupils at a flood-hit primary school when it reopens its doors today.

Scout Road Academy, Mytholmroyd, has been closed since the devastating Boxing Day floods.

Pupils were forced to relocate to Space2, Cragg Road, while work to remove asbestos from the hillside got underway.

An official opening ceremony will be held on Friday to mark the occasion.
