TWO teenagers have been arrested following vandalism at a special school.

There was outrage when St Francis School in Fareham suffered criminal damage totalling about £15,000.

It sparked a community fundraising appeal to help pay for the repairs.

Officers investigating the damage, which happened on November 8, have made two arrests.

Graffiti was sprayed on the school buildings, roof tiles were ripped up, and windows smashed.

Two 17-year-old boys were arrested yesterday on suspicion of causing criminal damage and have been bailed until January 4 pending further enquiries.

Police are still appealing for witnesses.

A spokesman said: ‘If you saw anything suspicious in the area please call PC Matt Curson at Fratton police station on 101 quoting 44150389154 or via the website hampshire.police.uk.’

Witnesses can also call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
