A school was closed this morning after a number of people started fighting with weapons on its property.

A passerby was stabbed in the leg and hand as they attempted to help armed police, who were called to Berwick Hills Primary School in Middlesbrough at around 8:40 a.m.

Violence is believed to have spread from the streets to school grounds, forcing teachers to take emergency precautions.

The school was cordoned off, as was a property on a nearby street, where a knife-edge theft was reported to have taken place.

Although it is still very early, investigators believe the two incidents are linked.

Officers were pictured this morning searching the playground for evidence and brought in a police dog. A policeman was pictured carrying a sealed bag containing a large sword-shaped weapon.
