Schools closed due to stormy weather

  • Gibraltar was hit by gale force winds which brought down scaffolding and tree branches

Several schools closed and parents were asked to keep their children at home if possible earlier this week when the Rock was hit by gale force winds which brought down scaffolding and tree branches.

An investigation is being launched into scaffolding which became detached from Ocean Spa Plaza.

Some roads had to be closed to traffic, and the Upper Rock Nature Reserve and Gorham's Cave viewing point were closed as a precautionary measure.
