OFFICERS were called to a primary school in Shoeburyness after a knife was found in one of its playing fields.

Two officers, PCSO Adams and PCSO Dean, were on patrol yesterday checking on beach huts when they got the call.

“In a social media post, the team wrote: “[We] popped over to a primary school which had found a knife on its playing field.

“Clearly someone needs to be spoken to about where and how to dispose of knives safely.”

The post added: “Lobbing over the fence into a school playing field isn’t one of them.”
