I don't want a US-style shooting, says one parent

Several schools in West Yorkshire were put into a partial lockdown after receiving emails that involved "threatening violence to children and staff".

This incident comes just two days after several schools in Manchester and Cheshire were locked down over a series of "malicious communications", which are understood to have involved threatening staff and students.

Greater Manchester Police and Cheshire Constabulary said both forces were investigating the emails.

Cheshire Police stated that the email sent to schools in Cheshire Ellesmere Port had "made threats to pupils and staff."
