Police and paramedics were called to a school in Warwickshire, UK after a ‘noxious substance’ was released. A Warwickshire Police spokesperson said the substance that was released at the secondary school in Bedworth appeared to be a CS Spray.

Coventry Live reported that the school sent a message to parents, reading: “Good afternoon, there was an incident at school today with an aerosol during period 5. Paramedics attended the school and offered advice. Anyone suffering irritation should wash their face and remove any contact lenses.”

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We sent one ambulance, three paramedic officers and the critical care car from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance to the scene.

“On arrival, we found three patients who had come into contact with an unknown substance, a man, a woman and a girl. Following assessment, all three were discharged at the scene.”
