Upminster Junior School had to be evacuated on its first day of term this morning after a kitchen fire.
Luckily, no one was hurt, and the fire was out before the fire brigade arrived at about 11am.
A crew from Harold Hill Fire Station was first on the scene. It is thought the blaze, which only caused minimal damage, started in a deep fat fryer.
Firefighters commended school staff for their efficiency in getting the children safely out of the building in St Mary’s Lane.
A 41-year-old man has been stabbed at an address in Harold Hill.
