An investigation is under way after a shed fire at a school in Lowestoft.

Firefighters were called at about 9.30am on Saturday December 29 following reports of a fire at St Margaret’s Primary Academy on Church Road.

Two fire crews were mobilised and found a shed alight on the premises. A single hosereel was used to extinguish the blaze and the scene was considered safe just after 10am.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said: “The fire does appear to have been started deliberately and an investigation is taking place to find the cause.”

Suffolk Police confirmed they had received a report of a fire at the school from the fire service at 9.55am.

The fire was under control at the time and no officers attended the scene, but an investigation has been launched.
