Work starts on temporary school for Catherine Junior pupils
Work has begun on a temporary building for pupils from Catherine Junior School in Leicester, which was badly damaged by fire two weeks ago.
The classrooms are being installed on the playing fields at Abbey Community Primary School.
The temporary school will house the 380 pupils from Catherine Junior which was rendered unusable on October 30.
This morning the pupils were taken in by four nearby schools in the city until the temporary home is ready in the New Year.

Leicester Assistant City Mayor responsible for children, young people and schools, Vi Dempster, said: "Schools across the city have pulled together to help minimise the disruption caused by this fire, and we're working closely with Abbey Community Primary School to carry out this building work.
"The fire and the need to make urgent alternative school and travel arrangements have inevitably caused some disruption.
"But we are very pleased that we've be able to move so swiftly to ensure children receive their full term of education."
Work at the Abbey Community Primary School site is due to be completed by the end of 2012. Pupils will then move in at the start of the spring term in January 2013.
