A pupil who was allegedly assaulted at a school in Reading on Tuesday afternoon remains in a critical but stable condition.

The 12-year-old boy was airlifted to hospital from the Blessed Hugh Faringdon Catholic School after he collapsed in the playground.

A boy, aged 11, was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and has been released on bail.

The school confirmed there had been a "medical emergency" at about 13:00 BST.

On Tuesday, Det Insp Nick Watts appealed for any witnesses or anyone with mobile phone footage to come forward.
