  1. How I wish Sussex Police were so pro active on other crimes, with only a 17% success rate there’s ample scope to improve, I would be interested to know why she did it

      • Are we supposed to simply ignore this pointless drivel, or call on morons like Hird to explain their entirely unhelpful useless time wasting comments?

  2. I say well done to all staff for successfully getting every single girl out safe and sound. Feel for the parents too as very silly girl ruined her life with arsonist on record I know I would be mortified if it was my daughter and hope this community can pull together and help this school to get back to normal for all our kids education.
