Kids charged after blaze

Three youths have been charged in connection with alleged wilful fireraising after an installation at a Midlothian school was destroyed.

The structure within the garden area of the Loanhead Community Learning Centre suffered significant fire damage following the incident on Friday, September 2. The centre has since vowed to rebuild it.

Police said a ten-year-old girl and two boys aged nine and 13 will now be reported to the Children’s Reporter.
