Children return to St Mary's College after large fire

All 700 pupils at a Lancashire school which suffered "devastating damage" in a fire during the summer holidays have returned to lessons at the site.

Pupils at St Mary's Catholic Technology College, in Leyland, have been taught at two sites since the blaze on 1 September.

Years seven, 10 and 11 returned to the undamaged classrooms in November. Years eight and nine have now also returned after demolition work.

Headteacher Kathryn McNicholas said she felt like "a mum when all the children come home for Christmas".
