People living nearby saw more than a dozen police cars and four ambulances arrive on the tree-lined road and an air ambulance land in the grounds of Hartley Brook Primary Academy, just 100 metres from the scene.

Gregg House Road resident Aaron Brunskill said neighbours came out into the street, adding: "The police weren't telling us anything.

"I know there's children there. I've just seen them walking back to the shops and that's all I know."
