Children evacuated from Glasgow primary school by police after bomb threat call

By Craig Williams

Pupils at a Glasgow primary school had to be evacuated from classrooms after a hoax bomb call.

The malicious call was made to Corpus Christi school in the Knightswood area after 12pm yesterday.

Police raced to the scene and pupils were evacuated as a search was carried out in conjunction with council staff. Children attending the school were then allowed to returned to their classrooms following the all-clear.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace the person responsible for the call.

The incident has sparked a police warning that they take such calls "extremely seriously" as they "divert police resources and cause disruption and alarm to the public".

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Officers from Police Scotland were called to an incident, believed to be a malicious call made to Corpus Christi school in Glasgow around 12.10pm on Wednesday, 11 May, 2022.

"A search was carried out in conjunction with the local authority and pupils returned to school. Enquiries are continuing to trace who is responsible.

"Police Scotland takes hoax calls extremely seriously. They divert police resources and cause disruption and alarm to the public. Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

It is the second time in a matter of months a Glasgow primary school has had to be evacuated due to a hoax bomb call.

Back in January, police descended on St Mary's Primary School and adjacent Maryhill Park Nursery School in the Maryhill area after a threat was reportedly made to the school by telephone.
