A Suffolk schoolboy is in a “serious condition” in hospital following an alleged self-harming incident, police have said.

Officers were called to the Royal Hospital School in Holbrook at just after 5pm on Monday after a boy was found injured, police said.

It is understood an air ambulance was called and transferred the boy to hospital.

In a statement, a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “Police were called at just after 5pm on Monday to a school in Holbrook after a boy had been found injured, believed to have self-harmed.

“The boy has been taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.”

James Lockwood, headteacher of the Royal Hospital School, said in a statement: “As a result of an incident involving a pupil at the Royal Hospital School on Monday, the emergency services were called to the school at around 5pm.

“It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”

The age of the boy was not confirmed. It is thought no further details about the incident will be released today.
