North Yorkshire Police Press Release

We have had a number of reports this morning about a bomb hoax at many of our schools across the county. This is believed to be a national issue.

Our Cybercrime Unit Detectives, supported by local officers, have looked at these incidents and it is not believed there is any genuine threat.

We are working with schools to offer reassurance and address any concerns.

If anyone receives an email like this please contact 101 and report the matter, North Yorkshire Police will assign an Officer or PCSO for reassurance and evidence gathering.
