Police enquiries into an arson attack at Carlton Colville Primary School are continuing, with three teenage boys set to be interviewed in connection with the blaze.

As The Journal reported last month, a £10,000 appeal was launched to help rebuild the popular 10ft Celtic roundhouse after it was destroyed by heartless vandals during half-term.

Someone set fire to the £6,000 wood and reed thatched roundhouse replica at the school site in Gisleham Road, Carlton Colville about 2pm on Wednesday, February 17 – leaving staff and pupils devastated.

Last month police issued an appeal for witnesses and were keen to trace three teenage boys – thought to be aged around 15 – who were seen in the area at the time.

Last night, a police spokesman said: 'Police are interviewing three 16-year-old boys from the Lowestoft area in connection with the incident and enquiries are continuing.'

? Information should be directed to Lowestoft police on 101, quoting crime number 18096/16.
