Seven schools have been targeted by bomb hoaxers this morning with a series of calls made from around 8am.
The schools affected were:
- Leasowes High School in Dudley.
- Holly Lodge Foundation High, Oldbury Academy and Perryfields High Schools in Sandwell.
- Edgbaston High School for Girls, King David and Kind Edwards Boys Schools in Birmingham.
