A 13-year-old boy provoked a huge emergency response after making a hoax phone call to warn of a bomb at a primary school.
Police rushed to the scene at Fen Ditton Primary School, near Cambridge, after receiving reports of a bomb threat yesterday morning.
Pupils and staff were forced into an urgent mass evacuation following the teenager’s bogus call to the school in Horningsea Road.
Investigating officers later confirmed that the situation was no longer being considered a live threat and have since questioned the young culprit.
A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said: ‘We were called at about 10am yesterday to Fen Ditton Primary School with reports the school had received a bomb threat.
‘The caller has been identified as a 13-year-old boy. He has since been interviewed.
‘An investigation for communicating false information continues.’
