Lancashire police are investigating an apparent apology by someone claiming they made online threats to kill pupils at a school in Blackpool.
More than a thousand pupils did not attend Montgomery High in Blackpool yesterday and police have been patrolling the area.
The apparent confession was posted on a newspaper website and describes the threats as incredibly stupid. Police don't believe the threats were credible.
The apology, which was sent to The Blackpool Gazette, read:
"Please just forget about the threats. I am a bullied student at Montgomery, I did start the threats but they are NOT genuine; I simply wanted to shock the school into handling the bullies.
"It was the stupidest decision I’ve ever made, I’ve wasted time, money, and panicked people for no reason. I’ll always regret this and now I genuinely feel like I’m worse than the bullies. I’ve been having such a tough time with the school ignoring me when I tell them I’m being bullied, especially considering it first started about 2 years ago and I’ve been reporting it around once a month since."
He is described as white, around 5ft 10in to 6ft tall, of muscular build with a shaved headRead the full story ›
