A secondary school in London has been evacuated for the second time in four days after a series of hoax bomb threats.

Parents of children at Oaks Park High School in Carshalton were told on Monday morning that police had asked teachers to urgently evacuate pupils onto the playing fields.

The school said it had received an ‘identical threat’ via email at the same time on Friday.

One mother, who has a 13-year-old boy at the school, said the latest ordeal was ‘terrifying’.

She told MailOnline: ‘Everything goes through your head… You don’t know if it’s real or not. Imagine if they said to the pupils that you can go in and something happens.

‘I would rather collect my kid from school but you just have to trust the police have done their job.’

After sending an alert to parents at 8.19am, the school issued another update at 9.14am to say that police had ‘given clearance for the school to reopen’.

The Met Police previously said Friday’s incident was being treated as malicious communications and they had no wider concerns.

Officers searched the building and nothing was found on Friday.

No one has been arrested in connection with the threatening emails.

Metro.co.uk has approached the Met Police for further comment on today’s incident.
