A 17-year-old boy was arrested on Wednesday for attempted murder after three people were injured in an apparent stabbing at a school in northern England, police said, days after a similar incident in Wales.

The boy was detained following reports of three people being injured at Birley Community College in Sheffield, South Yorkshire Police said.

Officers responded to reports of an incident “involving a sharp object” at around 8:50 am (0750 GMT).

Two adults were checked at the scene after suffering minor injuries, the force said in a statement. A child was also checked over after being assaulted, it added.

Last Friday, a 13-year-old girl made a first appearance in court in Wales on three counts of attempted murder after two teachers and a pupil were stabbed at a secondary school.

The attack occurred at the Amman Valley School in Ammanford, north of Swansea, just after 11:00 am last Wednesday.
