Pupils suspended over online game

Dozens of pupils at a North East Lincolnshire school have been suspended after downloading a game from an internet site.

In all, 74 pupils at Tollbar Business and Enterprise College at Waltham, near Grimsby, were suspended for what the school said was a breach of IT policy.

Principal David Hampson said there were some 1,000 computers at the college and they were provided for educational use.

"Computers here are used for learning ... not for playing games," he said.
