Daily Mail - - News -

A 50,000-volt Taser stun-gun was con­fis­cated by po­lice af­ter a pupil smug­gled it into pri­mary school.

Teach­ers are be­lieved to have found the weapon, which can de­liver a fa­tal elec­tric shock, in a child’s school bag.

Po­lice were called to the un­named school in the Swale district of Kent and of­fi­cers took the Taser away.

It was one of 110 of­fen­sive weapons seized in Kent schools dur­ing the past three years, which in­cluded air guns and many types of knives.

Lo­cal res­i­dent Craig Hendry, of Sit­ting­bourne, said: ‘It is ab­so­lutely ter­ri­fy­ing that a taser gun was found in a pri­mary school.’

De­tec­tive Susie Harper said: ‘We work closely with both schools and pupils to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion around the risk of car­ry­ing weapons.’
