An investigation has confirmed a fire at Sawston Village College in Cambridgeshire was started accidentally.

The fire, which badly damaged a library and administration area, broke out at the college last Thursday (6 September).

The school was evacuated and around 40 firefighters were needed to put out the fire.

A fire investigation has now concluded the fire was most likely to have been caused by a hot air gun that was being used to redecorate some windows.

The college was closed the day after the fire (Friday 7 September) and re-opened yesterday (Monday 10 September).
