POLICE are investigating following a suspected arson attack on two benches in the grounds of Lymm High School on Friday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to two benches on fire in the grounds of the high school in Oughtrington Lane at around 16.40.
Crews used a hose reel to put out the fire which is believed to have been started maliciously.
Head teacher Gwyn Williams said: “We are aware that some benches on the school grounds were set alight this afternoon and are obviously very concerned, although also grateful the fire did not spread and the incident become any more serious.
“The police have been informed and we shall be co-operating with them in full.”
