Police are appealing for information after an empty school building in Invergordon, was set on fire around 6.10 pm yesterday evening, Wednesday March 17.

The fire took place in Park Primary School, Albany Road – the second fire in a matter of weeks.

Detective Sergeant Eoin Coull said: “Fortunately no one was injured and the fire was quickly contained and extinguished by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

“We believe this fire was started deliberately and I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious, particularly people within the school grounds to get in touch.

“This is not the first wilful fire raising at this location and this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated. Officers are working to find those responsible.

“If you can help with our investigation please call 101, quoting incident 2709 of Wednesday, 17 March, or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
