The police have received a number of calls from schools concerning a malicious email. The emails are believed to have been sent to schools across the country. None of the threats received by schools are believed to be a threat to our communities.
It is the second time in nine days that schools have been targeted by hoax threats.
According to the Mirror, the email allegedly threatened that ‘pupils would be run down’ if they left the building or shot down.
A spokesman for the National Crime Agency said: “We are aware of new reports of threats made to schools and are liaising with partners in law enforcement and the education sector.”
