EGGS left on a stove at an Ipswich school required the services of the fire brigade.

Two crews from Ipswich were called to reports of a kitchen fire at 4.30pm yesterday at Copleston High School.

However when the crews arrived the fire had been extinguished thanks to the quick thinking actions of the head teacher.

Laurie Robinson head teacher at Copleston said: "We received reports of smoke coming out of the canteen and I went to investigate and there was a considerable amount of smoke in the room. To be on the safe side I called the fire service. However I could see that there were no flames in the canteen so I went in and found that a pan of hard boiled eggs which had been left boiling since lunch time was the cause of the problem. I turned off the pan and opened the windows. When the fire service arrived they checked everything was safe just as a precaution."
