Firefighters were called to Tanbridge House School after a fire broke out on the roof of the building this afternoon (Monday May 23).

A crew from Horsham was sent to tackle the flames at the building in Guildford Road at around 2pm.

A spokesman for the fire service said the small fire was put out before crews arrived.

Firefighters used a house reel to dampen down the area and a thermal imaging camera to check for heat hotspots.

The fire is being treated as an accident, the spokesman added.
