There’s been a second bomb threat at Ashley Hill school in Onchan.

It follows a similar incident on Tuesday when some 265 children and staff were evacuated to Onchan Community Centre as a precautionary measure after a threat was received by phone.

Then pupils were picked up by their parents at lunchtime and a search of the school and its grounds by police found nothing suspicious.

This time, 252 children have been moved to Onchan School, and parents and guardians are asked to collect them as soon from the car park where they will be met by school staff and police officers.

Schools across the UK have been forced to close in recent days after a series of similar anonymous bomb threats.
