There are extra police patrols at a school in Taunton today after a teenager threatened to carry out an attack there.

The 14-year-old was arrested after posting the threats onto Facebook pages of pupils at Heathfield Community School - he's been released on bail.

Police have been reassuring parents and staff.

I think it's really important that I reassure the parents of the children attending that school that we're working really closely with the head teacher, the school, children's services and health to make sure that all the appropriate measures are in place to provide that reassurance and support not only for the local community, the school itself but also the individual boy and their family.
