School re-opens after massive blaze

Video. A school has re-opened just a few days after a fire ripped through some of its buildings. Five hundred pupils were ushered to safety when the blaze broke out at Winton Community Academy in Andover. But the damage was so bad, there were fears the school would remain closed for some time.

Instead, the work of the emergency services and school staff has meant students were able to go back this morning. Andrew Pate reports.
