Two teenage girls have been charged with arson following a fire at Exning Primary School in September.

The 16-year-old and 17-year-old girls, who can’t be named because of their age, have both been charged with arson – damaging the school to the value of around £200,000.

The two teenagers were arrested within days of the fire that happened in the early hours of September 4.

Both were interviewed by officers before being bailed to allow further enquiries to be carried out.

The pair returned on October 2 as per their bail conditions and were charged.
