Teen arrested after school evacuated following prank calls
Police have arrested a 13-year-old boy in connection with hoax calls which caused a school to be evacuated for two days.
The teenager, from Scarborough, North Yorkshire, is being questioned on suspicion of communicating false information.
Pupils from Graham School, a secondary in the seaside town, were evacuated on Monday and Tuesday while police searched the area.
Parents were asked to collect their children and GCSE students were transported to another school to sit their exams.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Police arrested a 13-year-old boy from Scarborough this afternoon on suspicion of communicating false information in connection with calls made to a school in Scarborough.
"He remains in custody at this time, as inquiries continue."
A North Yorkshire County Council spokeswoman said police had thoroughly searched the school buildings but found "nothing suspicious or of concern".
She said the school would be open as normal on Wednesday.
She added: "For the remainder of this week, students are asked to report to the main hall/canteen area on their arrival at both upper and lower sites.
"Students will then move on to their form at 8.40am as usual."
