Children from a Truro school are in the path of a cyclone wreaking havoc in the US.

Pupils from Richard Lander School are on a two-week exchange trip to Mechanicsburg in Pennsylvania.

The party of 13 children and two teachers were due to travel to New York today but the plans had to be scrapped because of the freak weather conditions.

Phil Gilbert, deputy headteacher at Richard Lander, said: "Hurricane Sandy has stopped them from going to New York for the New york experience that was due to take place today and tomorrow.
