TODDLERS at a nursery were evacuated from the site this morning after a small fire broke out.
The fire started in a light fitting at the Just Learning Nursery in Kestrel Drive, Cedars Park, near Stowmarket, at about 7.40am and all staff and children were taken outside as a precaution.
Nursery Manager Karen Abram said the evacuation was part of a robust set of procedures that are in place and the drama was over very quickly.
She said: “Everyone was completely safe and we only had a couple of children in at the time. It's Children in Need today and we're supposed to be doing something different - and that's what we did this morning.”
