Break in at Stamford Endowed Schools as youths spotted on science block roof
Three people broke into a school during the early hours of yesterday (Sunday) morning and were spotted climbing on the building's roof.
Police were called to Stamford Endowed Schools' science block off Brazenose Lane at about 2.10am after neighbours were woken by unusual noises coming from the building.
One witness said the three intruders looked like youths, and that they were concerned about them being on the roof in case they fell.
Hannah Hamilton, director of external relations for the Stamford Endowed Schools, said: “We can confirm that three people gained entry to the science block in the early hours of Sunday morning. No damage was done.
"The police were alerted and the matter has now been dealt with.”
The school declined to say whether or not the three involved were their own pupils.
A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said no arrests had been made when officers attended the school.
They added: "We located three youths nearby and they were taken home. Words of advice were given to the parents of these youths."
