Police were called to a Warwickshire primary school after two ten-year-old boys spiked their teacher's coffee with a "bleach-like liquid".

Emma Place, a teacher from Clapham Terrace Community Primary School in Leamington Spa, reportedly had her back turned when the 10-year-olds poured the substance into her flask.

Another pupil warned her of the danger before she had a chance to drink the coffee, The Sun said.

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police told the newspaper that the pupils had not realised the "seriousness or severity" of what they did.
