A Co.Down Primary School's website has been hacked to link to a graphic pornography site. 

St.Ronan's Primary school in Newry says it is aware of the problem, and staff are working to resolve the issue. 

The issue came to light this weekend when parent's posted concerned messages on social media.

The website is regularly used to update parent's of developments at the school during adverse weather, or to offer information about clubs and activities. 

Parent's are being urged to keep their children from attempting to access the site until the issue has been resolved. 

The school also has social media outlets of Facebook and Twitter which don't appear to have been effected, and may offer more reliable updates.
