A teenage boy has admitted taking two knives into a north Norfolk school.

It follows an incident at North Walsham High School on July 17 when a 13-year-old pupil was found in possession of two knives.

Three people were arrested in connection with the incident.

One of them was charged with offences and appeared at Norwich Youth Court last month.
