A 14-year-old pupil has been found hanged in the grounds of a secondary school in Pembrokeshire.

The boy was discovered in a wooded area of Pembroke School on Thursday afternoon.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the boy's family had been informed along with the coroner.

"Police school liaison officers have been working with the school to ensure the well-being of the rest of the pupils," said police in a statement.

Officers were called at 14:00 GMT and the woods, close to the school's reception, were sealed off.

The school - a mixed comprehensive with over 1,380 pupils between the ages of 11-18 - will be open on Friday, its website said.
