A primary school pupil in Bristol has been suspended after threatening his headteacher with a knife.
An investigation is underway
The headteacher was not injured in the incident, which happened at the Two Mile Junior School in the Kingswood area of the city on Thursday.
The nine year old is understood to have brandished the blade during a lesson.
Bristol City Council said an investigation had begun into the incident and Avon and Somerset Police had been informed.
A spokesman added that as the child is too young to face prosecution and because no crime has been recorded, they would be taking no further action.
A Bristol City Council spokeswoman said: "We can confirm there was an incident at Two Mile Hill Junior School yesterday and the pupil concerned has been excluded.
"The matter has been reported to the police and is under investigation, so we can't give any further information."
