There is shock in Penryn after a fight between parents in a school playground had to be broken up by police using pepper spray.

The bust-up at the infant school before half term left children scared and mums and dads angry.

A man has been arrested and bailed.

Local mum Carolyn said: "It's despicable. No parent should behave like that, especially in front of the children. They need to grow up and know how to behave because; what are they showing their children? And then they are probably going to repeat the circle. I think it's an awful situation. I can't understand how it could get so serious in a playground that police have to use pepper spray."

In a statement Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The use of CS Spray is an effective tool for officers particularly in public order and violent incidents in order to prevent escalation of an incident, to bring it to a swift conclusion and prevent injury to victims and innocent members of the public."


Mary May is Chair of Governors at the school: "I in particular am very sorry that parents had to bring this into the school playground, but Penryn Infants School is a great school it has loads of history and we will do everything possible to make sure that this event doesn't happen again.

"The head here herself I think is very dismayed and upset really that it's happened on school premises. Teachers devote their lives to teaching children and I think it's upsetting for teachers, staff and families to have witnessed this fight."
