Teenager in hospital and two boys arrested after stabbing at secondary school

The Bristol Post is reporting that two teenagers are being held by police after a pupil was stabbed at a school in Weston-super-Mare.

The incident happened at 1.45pm [Monday] at Worle Community School in Redwing Drive.

The victim was initially treated by paramedics before being taken to Bristol Children’s Hospital for treatment. It is not yet known how serious his injuries are but it is understood he was stabbed in the chest.

Two 15-year old boys were arrested at the scene. Police say they are being held on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and are in custody for questioning.

A police spokesman said the victim, who is also 15, suffered minor injuries in the incident.

He said: “This is a contained and isolated incident involving a small number of pupils at the school and we’d like to reassure the public that there’s no on-going risk to anyone else at the school or the local community…”

The school is one of only two secondary schools across North Somerset which has not converted to an academy and is still under the control of the local education authority.

North Somerset Council said it was aware of the incident but at this stage would not be making any further comment…
