Two men have been arrested after a car caused damage to a school in Sheffield this morning.

Police were called to a secondary school, Fir Vale Academy, in Owler Lane just before 8.25am this morning after reports that a black BMW was being driven at speed around the school car park and had caused damage to the entrance.

No one was hurt.

Two men aged 23 and 20, both from the Sheffield area, have been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and causing criminal damage and are currently in police custody.

T/Detective Chief Inspector Steve Ashmore, investigating, said

'Officers have been at the school for most of the day, carrying out enquiries at the scene and reviewing CCTV footage of the incident.

'The school closed for the day to enable us to do this and I’m grateful for their support and co-operation. The school will open again as normal tomorrow.

'While an investigation is underway and in its early stages, I’d like to reiterate that we believe this to be an isolated incident and that there is no wider risk to the surrounding community.'
