This is a statement from Durham Constabulary Website:
We have received a number of calls from schools in our region reporting that they have been sent threatening emails.
Police forces across the country are also believed to have reported similar incidents.
The emails inform the school that they will be targeted in an attack later today.
Enquiries are continuing to establish the facts and forces are working together to investigate the threat and who is responsible.
We are requesting that parents do not ring the police as we are in contact with the schools to offer advice and reassurance, and to keep them updated on the investigation.
We take all incidents of this nature extremely seriously.
Anyone with any information that could assist police should contact Durham Constabulary on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
