Schools in London were among hundreds up and down the country which were evacuated due to a mass bomb threat from Trump’s America.


More than 400 schools and colleges across the UK received the email threat this morning, according to police.


“The emails inform the school that a bomb has been placed on the grounds and will be detonated if they don’t hand over cash.” Northumbria Police said in a tweet.


It is believed the NCA and SO15 are now investigating.


The threats have been sent to UK schools from the United States. The Met Police has confirmed it is investigating and working with the National Crime Agency and Cyber Terrorism Unit.


Schools in boroughs across the capital were evacuated.


Among them were Brookfield Primary School in Highgate, according to the Camden New Journal.


John Sweeney, of Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Primary School in Tolworth, wrote: “News from OLI school #tolworth #surbiton. We have received a bomb threat which the Police have advised us to assume is a hoax. In line with our security policy we have evacuated the children who are all safe at Grand Avenue School. Some people!​“


Another Twitter user wrote: “Why is my Children’s school being evacuated? Windrush Charlton.”


A Met Police spokesman said: “Police are investigating reports of communications made to a number of schools across London today. There have been no arrests. Enquiries are ongoing.”


So far all schools swept by the bomb squad have proven to be hoaxes, however police and counter terrorism units have advised the public to follow evacuation procedures in line with terrorism protocols.



Military were photographed at the London schools working in conjunction with the Royal Bomb Disposal.


Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
