Police are investigating after they were called to a primary school to a child found with a knife.

A report that a child had brought in a knife was made to police by teachers at Davington Primary in Faversham.

The incident took place just before 12.20pm on Thursday (April 22).

Officers say they are working with "partner agencies" and school leaders to determine what course of action is taken.

There were no reports of any injuries.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "Kent Police was called at 12.18pm on Thursday 22 April 2021 to a report a child had brought a knife to Davington Primary School, in Faversham.

"Officers are investigating the circumstances and are now working with partner agencies, including the school, to determine an appropriate course of action. A knife was also seized."

The incident is not the first knife incident in the county to involve young children recently.

Earlier this month, an eight-year-old was stabbed in the hand in Dover.
