A new helpline's giving advice to staff and parents who have children in school.

The phone number's for anyone with questions about coronavirus in an education setting.

It comes as a student at Bournemouth University tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, yesterday.

It offers advice for anyone about the virus' impact on education, all the way up to university.

Staff, parents and young people can use the service:
