Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS)said when crews got to St Marys Blue Coat Primary School in Bridgnorth they found it had been a false alarm.

A spokesperson for SFRS said steam from the school heating system had been confused as smoke, but following an external search of the building completed on foot using thermal imagine cameras, fire crews found no sign of flames.
