Olympic dining room becomes new school building

A building, once part of the Olympic athletes dining room at London 2012 has become a temporary creative arts block at a Dorset school.

The building, the size of two football pitches, includes a 450 seat theatre, art classrooms, a dance studio and music rooms.

The art block at Lytchett Minster Upper School near Poole was hit by lightning during the Christmas holidays and destroyed by fire.

It's taken an emergency response team from Dutch temporary structure specialist De Boer just 45 days to complete the building in time for A Level and GCSE exams this summer. Today it was officially opened by Olympic shooting gold medallist Peter Wilson. Luke Castiglione has been to take a look.

Pupils to return to school after fire

Lytchett Minster School caught alight after being struck by lightning

Students are returning to their fire-damaged school today. The arts block at Lytchett Minster School in Dorset was struck by lightning. Demolition work is taking place to make the building safe - but due to a lack of classrooms not all pupils will attend every school day.
