A SOUTHAMPTON school will reopen tomorrow after a potentially fatal bacteria was found in its water system.

Mason Moor Primary School in Millbrook has been shut all week since legionella - which can lead to Legionnaire's Disease - was discovered.

But the school's hot water systems and pipework have now been isolated and treated, while new localised water boilers have been installed.

Tests have confirmed that the bacteria has disappeared.

Although drinking water was not affected, that has also been treated.
