Two men have been arrested after a primary school was burgled.
Pinner Wood School, in Latimer Gardens, Pinner, closed down on Thursday, March 23, after a “partially collapsed” chalk mine was discovered underneath.
Harrow police were called to Pinner Wood School, in Latimer Gardens, Pinner, on Wednesday, April 12, as the school was burgled.
Two males have since been arrested on suspicion of burglary.
Geotechnical surveys undertaken by Peter Brett Associates and partner Clive Edmonds showed the ground beneath the school buildings and playgrounds could become unstable and unsafe, due to the condition of very recently discovered chalk mine tunnels below.
Laser imaging of these previously “uncharted and unknown” tunnels revealed that they stretch beneath the school buildings and the mine roofs have collapsed in certain places.
Pupils will now not return to the school and classes will relocate to other educational places in Harrow in time for the start of the Summer Term.
