Pupils at four schools in Cornwall were evacuated this morning after a series of bomb threats at around 8am.
Police are not releasing the names of the schools in the Truro, St Ives and Penzance areas as they investigate.
At around 8am today, Tuesday, January 26, 2016, four secondary schools in Truro, St Ives and Penzance, received calls suggesting a potential security threat.
As a result, all four schools self-evacuated.
By 9am, following police attendance and immediate enquiries, there was quickly found to be no threat and no risk to any children or staff.
Enquiries are continuing into the matter.
The calls were made at around the same time six schools in the West Midlands and four schools in London received similar threats.
A West Midlands Police said there was "no credible threat" to schools in the region and linked them to hoax threats made to two schools in Sandwell and Dudley last week.
