A military helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing on school playing fields on Friday afternoon.
Northants Fire and Rescue were called to Campion School in Bugbrooke, after reports the helicopter was in flames.
The aircraft was forced down by a fire in the cockpit and the pilot made a safe landing. The fire was put out before the emergency services arrived.
"No-one was injured, no ammunition was on board and the Army has arranged for its recovery," a spokesman said.
