A 13-year-old boy charged with being in possession of an air weapon with intent to cause fear of violence and being in possession of a bladed article at a Lincolnshire school has appeared in court.

Police were called to the school in the south of the county just after 9am on Monday 13 November after staff dealt with an incident involving a teenage pupil.

Lincolnshire Police confirmed they arrested a 13-year-old boy after being called to the secondary school at 9.12am.

No one was injured during the incident and the school was not closed.

The 13-year-old boy, who can not be named because of his age, appeared at Lincoln Youth Court on Monday, December 18.

Wearing a blue track suit top he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

No pleas were entered and there was no bail application.

District Judge Peter Veits remanded the boy back in to secure custody until January 12 when he will re-appear at Lincoln Youth Court.
