Three UK schools evacuated after receiving bomb threats
Three Lincolnshire schools were evacuated after police received allegations of “alleged explosives on the grounds.”
The police have termed the action as a “precautionary measure,” despite the fact that no proof has been uncovered to support the threats.
Children were told to leave the schools in Spalding, according to several UK news sites, as police descended on the premises. Spalding High School, St John the Baptist Primary School, and Monkshouse Primary School are among those affected.
The police confirmed this in a statement;
“We are working with three schools in Spalding following reports of threats received relating to alleged bombs on the premises.
“We are sending resources to each school to work with the Head Teacher to establish the facts and to ensure the schools are safe. In the meantime, as a precautionary measure, the schools have been evacuated.
“At this point there is nothing to suggest that these threats are real and nothing to corroborate the claims.
“The schools affected are Spalding High School, St John the Baptist Primary and Monkshouse Primary.”
