Police are being investigated after a group of schoolboys with learning difficulties were Tasered at a special needs school.
The police watchdog is supervising an investigation into how three boys – aged 14 and 15 – were blasted with a 50,000-volt electric stun gun.
Several police units were called to Chelfham Senior School near Plymouth, a special needs school owned by the exclusive Priory Group following an alleged assault on a teacher in a ‘scuffle’ with pupils.
Two 14-year-olds and a 15-year-old who were allegedly brandishing knives were Tasered on the school grounds by officers. A male teacher suffered chest and facial injuries in the incident, which were not thought to be knife related.
