Police were called to the Eburne Neighbourhood Learning Centre, off Deedmore Road in Wood End, at around 11.30pm last night to reports of an alarm and breaking glass.

Five fire engines were called to tackle the blaze which burned for several hours and is estimated to have caused £100,000 worth of damage.

This was a very serious fire that’s caused extensive damage; it’s a senseless attack on a community facility and will no doubt lead to huge disruption for people who rely on the centre. One witness has reported seeing people running off down Potters Green Road, potentially into Woodway Lane, so I’d also urge anyone in that area last night to call me as they may have important information.”
