School bomb threats are "false and malicious" say police

Police say bomb threat phone calls made to six schools in Birmingham and the Black Country yesterday morning are false and malicious at this stage.

Calls started shortly after 8am to schools and colleges across the region. 

Oldbury and Bristnall Hall academies, which are less than a mile from each other, were both threatened for the fourth time and delayed the start of their school days as a result.

Shireland Collegiate Academy and Perryfields High School were threatened for the second time, while Hall Green and Edgbaston schools received their first calls this morning.

It follows similar phone threats to schools in the West Midlands in recent weeks.
