The BBC writes:
… Group manager Steve Quinton said: ‘We know that refurbishment works were being carried out in the roof on Saturday afternoon which we believe has led to the accidental fire starting.
‘The extent of the damage at the Fry Building means we will never be able to identify exactly where the fire started but we are satisfied it started accidentally as a result of the works taking place that day…’.
The Fry Building is currently undergoing a £33m redevelopment to become the university’s new maths department.
The fire could delay its scheduled opening.
