A pair of teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of raiding a Kent primary school.

The 17-year-old from Northfleet and 18-year-old from Folkestone were held following the burglary at Morehall Primary in Chart Road, Cheriton yesterday.

The 17-year-old, also arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis, has been bailed until November 9.

The 18-year-old has been released while the investigation continues.

The school posted a message on its Facebook page yesterday telling parents not to worry.

It said: "Parents and children arriving at school this morning will have noticed a police presence.

"I am writing to inform you that unfortunately over the weekend, Morehall Primary was broken into. This has resulted in minor damage which will be swiftly rectified.

"The break in was discovered early this morning and the police were able to conduct their investigations prior to the start of the school day, therefore your children's learning has not been disrupted.

"If, however your child comes home today worried or upset about the events that have occurred, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the school team, who will be able to offer support and reassurance."
