POLICE have been called to a Bradford school to help handle an ongoing protest.

It is thought the disruption relates to comments made by a staff member on Facebook.

A witness said staff had barricaded themselves inside Carlton Bolling College, in Undercliffe Lane, "for their own safety".

A police spokesman said: "We were called out at 3.26pm to facilitate a peaceful protest."

He could not say how many officers were attending and added: "It is a school matter at this stage that we are assisting with."
