Police are investigating after receiving three reports on Monday (June 2) from parents saying their children had been jabbed with a diabetes finger-prick pen by a fellow pupil at a Â school Â in Wolverhampton.
Sergeant Steve Perry, from Low Hill, said: “Officers have been into the school and identified at least 20 children itâ€™s believed were jabbed with the pen. It has a needle â€™nibâ€™ just 3mm in length so none of the children are seriously hurt and public health officials have advised that the chance of infection is negligible. However, the pupils have been advised to have hepatitis injections as a precaution.
“An 11-year-old boy was arrested from his home address in Low Hill yesterday morning (June 3) and having been questioned by police has been bailed until a date in July pending further enquiries.”
