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.
