Children from Catherine Junior School in Leicester are back learning together again after a fire destroyed the roof of their school.

Asbestos fibres used for insulation also contaminated many areas, delaying repairs.

Pupils were sent to nearby schools but are now working in a temporary school made up of portacabins off Loughborough Road. It's hoped it may reopen before the end of this academic year.
