A Belfast school has been closed temporarily due to a rodent issue.

St Teresa's on the Glen Road, has been closed for an additional two days at the start of the new school term due to confirmation of a rodent issue.

It is understood the closure came following the discovery of rat droppings.

Principal Mr Terry Rodgers told the Belfast Telegraph in a statement: "I can confirm that we have had to close St Teresa’s for an additional two days at the start of the new school term due to confirmation we received that the school had a rodent issue.

"I understand that this is very inconvenient for our pupils however I can assure parents that the school is dealing with the problem as swiftly as possible.

"Once we have carried out a deep clean of the school we hope to be open as normal next week.

"I will be in touch with parents to keep them up to date.”
