Asbestos Fear In College Arson Attack

Arsonists caused an asbestos scare when they set light to an out-building at Coventry Technical College yesterday.

Firefighters were called to the storage building in the Butts shortly after 5pm when flames were spotted.

It is believed that the building was set on fire, but further investigations are being carried out to find the exact cause of the blaze.

Crews from Radford Road fire station had to use special techniques to stop asbestos in the roof being released into the atmosphere.

They had to keep the roof area damp to make sure the deadly dust did not escape.

It took them five hours to make sure that the flames were fully out.
