Graham School has closed for the day following a bomb threat

Police were called at around 9.10am after they were alerted to the threat.

As a precaution, to ensure student safety, the school was evacuated.

Cybercrime detectives and local officers have attended the school and have confirmed that this is a hoax and not a genuine threat.

Pupils are being sent home on a year by year basis.

The school will be open as normal tomorrow.

Police are currently carrying out enquiries to determine the circumstances around the incident.
