A school has been evacuated after it received a suspicious phone call this morning.

Police swooped on Bourne Grammar in Lincolnshire at around 11am while a parent said all pupils were ushered onto the playing fields.

Inspector Gary Stewart of Lincolnshire Police said: "We are responding to an incident at the school and have a number of officers at the scene."

People are being advised to avoid the area.

Lincolnshire Police said in a statement: "We are in attendance at Bourne Grammar School in South Road, Bourne following a call this morning reporting a suspicious phone call to the school.

“Emergency services are in attendance, and as a precautionary measure, all pupils and staff at the school have been safely evacuated.

“Members of the public should avoid the area while emergency services attend.

“We are continuing to liaise with the school.”

Marie, who works nearby at Jewsons in South Road, said emergency services have been in attendance at the school for over two hours.

She said: “There have been many police cars at the school for about two hours. We’ve had quite a few customers come in to say they’ve heard there’s an incident.

“We’re just hoping everything is okay, as we don’t have much information at the minute.”
