Boy arrested in school gun probe
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after someone was reportedly seen with a handgun outside Bromsgrove School, Worcestershire, on Wednesday evening.

West Mercia Police scrambled the force helicopter after being alerted by a member of the public.

The arrested boy has since been released on police bail.

Insp Jon Marsden said the suspect did not enter the independent school's grounds and no member of the public was threatened during the incident.
