Three men are today in custody after police were alerted to a report of an attempted break-in at an Ashford school.
Officers were called to the John Wesley Primary School, off Cuckoo Lane, in Singleton, at 11.30pm last night to a report of a burglary in progress.
After arriving at the scene, officers arrested two men from Ashford, aged 31 and 17, and a 21-year-old man from Cranbrook.
An extension is currently being built by contractors from WW Martin behind the school.
Forensic officers were today seen carrying out an inspection at the site.
