Cheltenham schoolboys, 10, warned over cannabis find

Two 10-year-old boys have been given a warning by police after being caught with cannabis at their primary school in Cheltenham.

A statement for Rowanfield Junior School said the drug had been brought to school from home.

"The police and school investigation has ascertained that this was a one-off incident," it said.

"However, it is a very serious matter and is now being dealt with through the school disciplinary policy."

Gloucestershire Police said officers were called to the school last Wednesday morning.

"The matter was discussed with the school and the boys were given a warning by the officers as this was deemed the most appropriate action," said police spokesman Chris Jackson.

The drugs were seized and will be destroyed, he added.

Local Safer Community Team officers have also arranged to do a presentation at the school about the dangers of drugs.
