Police are responding to reports of bomb threats over 400 have been sent via a US email address. Police would like to reassure local communities that officers are in contact with the schools involved and at this stage there is no evidence to suggest these threats are credible.
A number of schools in other parts of the country have made similar reports to their local police forces.
Police take incidents of this nature extremely seriously and an investigation is underway. Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to contact Police via the non-emergency number 101.
