A Feilding primary school has been put into lockdown as police respond to an incident nearby.

Lytton St School principal Ben Ward-Smith posted to the school’s Facebook page just after 11.30am on Monday asking parents to stay away from the school grounds.

”Kia Ora whānau. The school is in lockdown. All kids are safe and inside. I will let you know when the lockdown has been lifted.

“If you could stay out of the school grounds that would be much appreciated.”

Police have been approached for comment, but a spokesperson said they were dealing with a large volume of queries and would provide information when they were able.

Lytton St School was also locked down five days ago when police officers responded to a sighting of a person driving in the area with a warrant for their arrest around 2.20pm on Wednesday.

More to come.
