The Education Minister has confirmed that her department’s insurance will not cover any damage caused as a result of an unauthorised bonfire erected at a site owned by the department in Newtownards.

Earlier this month, a pyre was built on the grounds of the former Castle Gardens Primary School in the town, which is owned by the Education Authority (EA), and set alight.
