Headteacher of Plymouth’s Marlborough Primary School Rachel Summers said: “We followed procedure by phoning 999, phoning the police, as soon as we received that email – and then went into lockdown, so that children were all inside, with doors locked, nobody in, nobody out, just to be safe and make sure children were ok.
“We have a nursery unit that finishes at 11.45 and new children come in for the afternoon session. We were waiting for advice from the police. Until we had advice as to whether we could let children leave and go from the morning session, and whether we could let new ones in.
