A 15-year-old schoolboy is in police custody tonight, suspected of stabbing to death his teacher.

Ann Maguire was attacked, in the middle of the school day, and in front of several other pupils.

She was stabbed repeatedly, and died on the way to hospital

Ann Maguire, 61, taught Spanish and RE at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds. She'd worked there for more than 40 years and was described as the 'mother' of the school.

This evening students, staff and family members attended a service at a neighboring school to offer a prayer for a teacher who was universally admired and respected.
