Police say they have arrested a 14 year old boy on suspicion of attempted murder after a teacher was stabbed in Bradford.

West Yorkshire Police say they were contacted by the ambulance service at around 8.55am as paramedics were attending a report of a member of staff having been stabbed at Dixons Kings Academy.

The male teacher, aged 50, was taken to hospital for treatment to a stab wound to his body.

His condition is currently described as stable.

Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson, of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: "At this stage we do not believe there is an ongoing risk to pupils or staff at the school. The rest of the school is continuing to operate as normal and local officers, including safer schools officers and members of the local area neighbourhood team, are currently at the school and are liaising closely with staff.

"We are also working closely with our partners in the local authorities to investigate the full circumstances of this incident, which will be the subject of a thorough investigation."

Neil Miley, principal at Dixons Kings, said the school's thoughts were with the teacher and his family.

"We're working closely with the police and our main priority at this moment is the safety and well-being of our students and staff community.

"All students are safe and calm and have responded with tremendous maturity during a very difficult time for our school."
