Lightning-hit Lytchett Minster School gets new roof

A new roof has been lifted on to temporary accommodation at a Dorset school which was partially destroyed by fire.

The creative arts block at Lytchett Minster Upper School, near Poole, was destroyed in a blaze triggered by a lightning strike on 27 December.

Equipment, coursework and teaching records were lost in the fire.

Sections of temporary buildings from London 2012 Olympic venues will be used while the art block is rebuilt.

BBC South Today's Briony Leyland reports.
