Academic staff have been making preparations for students who have missed classes, in order for them to catch up.

The spokesman added: "There are two boilers at Isle Campus which failed at the beginning of the week.

"These work in tandem to heat a large part of the buildings and, in the interests of health and safety, the college took the decision to close the campus to students until we can guarantee a normal supply of heating across the campus.

"We have been waiting on a part for one of the boilers, which has now arrived and been fitted.

"This boiler is now working again. The second boiler (larger of the two) is being worked on by an engineer but as yet is not back in commission.

"Academic staff will be making arrangements to ensure that students will be able to catch up with their course work as soon as possible once they are back at college.
