The Sun is reporting that police were called to a primary school after two boys aged eight were caught with cannabis in the playground.

The two year 4 pupils were caught with cannabis at the Bedlington Station Primary School on Monday May 16.

Teachers immediately confiscated the class B drug with Northumbria Police called to the school.

The school’s headteacher Carl Sutherland said the children had not been suspended.

“A member of our staff became aware of two Year 4 pupils with a suspicious substance in the playground, which they confiscated. We immediately called the police who came in and took possession of the substance.”

He said there had been no attempt by the students to consume the substance on school grounds.

“There was a very frank conversation with the pupils and their parents to try to establish what happened.”
