Police Investigate Possible Arson Incident

St Mary’s police are investigating an arson incident at the secondary school.

But it isn’t as serious as it may suggest.

A week last Sunday, somebody had a barbecue and chose to shelter from the bad weather under the covered corridor between the classrooms at the back of the Carn Thomas site.

They cooked food on top of a plastic table and burned it.

PC Mark Blyth says it was clearly a party because of the cans strewn around and he is surprised that neighbours didn’t call the police because there must have been an element of disturbance.

Officers have been into the school to see if anybody has information and police are continuing to investigate what is a crime with a serious charge.
