A fire at a secondary school in Sussex is being treated as a crime, police confirmed tonight.
It broke out on the third floor of the building at the Millais School in Horsham on Thursday afternoon.
Examinations at the school suggests that the fire was started either deliberately or recklessly. No staff or students were injured in the blaze. It's likely that there will be a police presence at the school for a number of days.
