Planning mistake delays Kent school

Building work on a new primary school in Kent to replace one destroyed by fire has been delayed due to a mistake with construction drawings.

Pupils from Lympne Church of England School, near Hythe, have been taught at another school since the blaze in 2006.

The school was to be ready next month but has been delayed as the roof is higher than planning proposals allow.
