A 15-YEAR-OLD boy has been arrested in connection to a burglary at a Prudhoe school.

Northumbria Police confirmed the teenager had been arrested on suspicion of taking food and drink from Prudhoe West Academy after climbing on the roof on Wednesday, February 13.

The school announced that refreshments purchased for its Valentine's Day disco the following evening had been taken, with members of the community rallying round to cover the costs of the replenished stock.

The 15-year-old boy has since been released under investigation, and police enquiries are ongoing.
