A bomb scare that affected a number of schools in the Midlands this morning has turned out to be a hoax.
Three schools in Sandwell and one in Dudley were all evacuated after the phone calls between 9am and 9:30am.
A police investigation is now underway to find the person responsible for the calls.
The schools that were affected were: Oldbury Academy, Pound Road, Oldbury, Holly Lodge High School, Holly Lane, Oldbury and Bristnall Hall Academy, Bristnall Hall Lane, Oldbury.
Leasowes High School on Kent Road in Halesowen was also affected by the hoax.
Anyone with information which may aid officers should call police on 101.
