NORTH Bradley Primary School has been evacuated this morning after what is thought to have been an electrical fire.

The school is asking parents to pick up their children from the Peace Memorial Hall immediately after the entire school was evacuated at around 11.30am after smoke was seen to be coming from a light fitting.

In a post of the Peace Memorial Hall facebook page, a spokesman said: "North Bradley school... urgent. There has been an incident at school but everyone is safe.

"The school needs to close so could all children be collected from the peace memorial hall asap. They will not have coats bags etc with them as evacuating the school with speed was paramount."

A spokesman from Dorset and Wiltshire Fire said: "One pump from Bradford on Avon was mobilised to a report of a light fitting smoking at a premises in Church Lane, North Bradley.

"On arrival crews found smoke issuing from electric light fitting. Inspection carried out of roof void.

"Triple extension ladder, thermal imaging camera and air monitor in use for investigations. Premises advised to contact electrician to inspect property."
