School evacuated in smoke drama

A SCHOOL in Suffolk was evacuated after a boiler started pumping smoke throughout the building.

The drama unfolded at Ringshall School, in Offton road, at lunchtime.

Children were evacuated while firefighters from Stowmarket and Needham Market examined the area.

It later emerged the smoke was caused by “blowback” from the boiler, and the children were allowed back into classes this afternoon.
