Britain’s fire brigades along with ambulances were deployed on November 15 to Rosemead Prep School in Dulwich, London, due to reports of a ceiling collapse in a building.


It happened on the second floor early in the morning.

The incident led to several but minor injuries among school attendants, no fatalities took place.

Some injured were treated at the scene while others were admitted to a nearby hospital.

All other school visitors were evacuated from the building to avoid new collapses. The emergency services confirmed that everyone had been pulled out from school and no one was left inside the building after firefighters searched it.

A spokesman for the fire brigade acknowledged that 20 units of hardware were at the scene.

“All children and staff have been accounted for and the school is currently in the process of contacting parents,” a Met Police spokesman reported.

The principal of the preparatory school hasn’t yet commented on how this could happen.

Rosemead is an independent co-educational prep school for children aged between 2,5 and 11 and the teaching in its walls costs 4,900 pounds of sterling in a term.
