Fire forces school to close
THE BILLOWING SMOKE from a cane fire at Staple Grove, Christ Church, forced Blackman Gollop Primary students and staff to leave school early.
Parents and guardians collected their charges earlier than usual after the smoke from the fire that started just after 1 p.m. became overbearing.
One tender and three fire officers from Worthing Fire Station responded to the blaze after 1:17 p.m.
The school is closed today. (AH)
