Boy, 10, held over 'attack' on teachers in Orpington

A 10-year-old boy has been arrested over an alleged attack on two teachers at a school in south-east London.

One of the female victims suffered a broken leg and the other had a facial injury, Scotland Yard said.

Police were called to Burwood School, in Avalon Road, Orpington, which caters for children with special educational needs, at 13:00 GMT on Thursday.

The boy, who was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, was bailed to return on a date in February.

Both women were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital in Orpington.

In its Ofsted report in May, Burwood School, which teaches children aged 10 to 16, was described as "a safe school with a high level of health and safety".
