Around 40 people were inside Langold Dyscarr community school when the blaze began. Firefighters tackled the fire and the building was safely evacuated.

In a statement, the school's headteacher said:

An investigation is underway and the cause of the fire is currently unknown. We don't know how quickly the school will reopen as there is currently no supply of electricity.

My main concern is for the safety of our pupils and as headteacher, I will take advice from Nottinghamshire County Council and the Fire Service who are currently on site.

The fire was dealt with very effectively, but we are unable to comment further.

– Gemma Bradford, Headteacher
