SCHOOL CLOSURE: St Patrick’s RCVA Primary School, in Consett, will be closed on Wednesday, January 22. Durham County Council says the school is being closed because Northern Powergrid plan to turn the electricity supply off in the area between 8.30am and 5pm on that day.

TRAFFIC LIGHTS: Three-way traffic lights will be installed at the junction of Front Street and Newbiggin Lane in Lanchester for four days from February 15 while work takes place to connect the gas supply to a new development.
