A 13-year-old arrested in connection with an arson attack at a school on Boxing Day has been questioned further by detectives.

The music classroom at Great Cornard Upper School and Technology College near Sudbury was badly smoke damaged when bins outside the music block were set alight.

Fire crews found the bin against the school's music department well alight, scorching the exterior of the main buildings and came close to causing a serious fire inside classrooms.

The crews used breathing apparatus and a hose reel to bring the situation under control in about 20 minutes.

Following questioning the boy, from the Sudbury area, who was arrested last week on suspicion of arson, was re-bailed to return to Bury St Edmunds Police Station on February 26.
