POLICE have arrested two teenagers on suspicion of drug offences after being called to a Bradford secondary school.

West Yorkshire Police was called to Dixons Allerton Academy, in Rhodesway, at around midday on Thursday.

A spokesperson for the force said two 17-year-olds were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.

They were in custody on Thursday.

Three ambulances were also rushed to the school, a spokesperson for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service said.

Sir Nick Weller, CEO of Dixons Academies Trust, which runs a number of schools in Bradford including Dixons Allerton, said: "We cannot comment on safeguarding issues.

"Vaping is a growing problem among some young people.

"The incident was identified by the school and dealt with very quickly."

Dixons Allerton is a large secondary school which also has Sixth Form provision.

Vaping is legal in the United Kingdom, but illegal substances can be added to the devices in some cases.
