A school in Rugby that has called police in deal with a student protest over a bracelet policy.
Students at Bilton School in Rugby were told they were not allowed to wear bracelets sold to raise money for a fellow pupil who is suffering from cancer.
The school has issued a statement today saying that a "strike" by students today was largely a "peaceful" event but the police were called in the interests of safety.
The school said: "There was a small minority of students whose actions can only be described as anti-social and potentially dangerous who used this as an opportunity to be disruptive. These students were putting pressure on others not to go back into classrooms and contacted the press. "
