Sports Day has been cancelled at a school in Eaton Socon and parents have been asked to collect their children after reports of a man seen in the street with an axe.

Bushmead School has cancelled its sports day and sent a text message out to parents advising them to pick up their children, if possible.

The Hunts Post has received reports that several St Neots schools are on lock-down as a safety precaution after the man was spotted with an axe at 10am this morning (Friday). There have been no arrests so far.

“Schools have been notified and local people given safety advice,” said a police spokesman.
