Defiant staff at Carrick Primary School in Lurgan’s Sloan Avenue said last night they had already cleaned up and the doors will be open today for the second half of term.

The school cameras captured the raid at 7pm on Saturday and a school Facebook video appeal for the public to get in touch with police to identify the culprit had last night been viewed by more than 23,000 people.

The raider could be seen ransacking parts of the school in an apparent search for cash as he kicked and forced in doors.
