Three teenagers arrested in connection with the arson at Shinewater School last year have been told by police they will not be charged.
The trio had been bailed by police and were due to return on bail Friday (January 22).
But a spokesperson at Sussex Police said on Friday, “Following a thorough police investigation, two 14-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy, who were arrested in connection with the fire at Shinewater Primary School inn Milfoil Drive, have been released without charge.
“Currently there are no further lines of enquiry but anyone with further information is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial 0033 of 12/10.”
Fire swept through Shinewater Primary School and Nursery School in the early hours of a Monday morning in October.
More than 50 firefighters worked through the night to tackle the blaze in Milfoil Drive.
Police and fire investigators say the blaze was started deliberately.
