School delighted - sixth form boys devastated

Word reaches us of a school in South Wales, where teachers breathed a huge sigh of relief and performed a quick u-turn after learning a hotel where pupils were due to stay on a trip to Switzerland was located above a stripjoint.

The school, Abertillery Comprehensive School in Gwent, made the switch when parents read a review on TripAdvisor about the Hotel Continental in Interlaken.

Parent governor Delwyn Davies, who had a 15-year-old son going on the ski trip, is reported in the South Wales Argus as saying:

"I was very concerned about it. I would not have been happy if my son came back and said there was a strip joint."

And so the big wheel keeps on turning, and a new generation of TripAdvisor hackers is born.
