A school in Settle has shared an appeal for help to re-house a local family under threat of being split-up.

Settle C.E. Primary School posted the request on their Facebook page, saying they wanted to 'explore all avenues to try and assist.'

The large family has recently been given notice to leave the house they have rented in Settle for 7 years, by the 17th March.

In a post online, they say they have been told they need 'a miracle' to get a council house big enough, and have spent the last few months trying to rent privately, to no avail.

They now fear the family could be split-up in to two bed and breakfasts, most likely in Skipton or Keighley.

They have appealed for help to find a suitable property to rent.
