The shambles on school openings continues tonight as news that schools in Greenwich and Lewisham boroughs would open next week has been reversed.
The news follows a letter sent from a number of council leaders to Education Secretary Gavin Williamson and the Department for Education.
The decision of just which boroughs would see schools close and which open never made any sense, with case levels not matching plans to open.
Just today both boroughs have risen above 800 cases per 100k – which is some way above boroughs that were to remain closed.
It leaves teachers and parents in a real mess.
