Two girls have been arrested on suspicion of possessing a prohibited weapon following an alleged attack at a Chislehurst school yesterday (March 11).
Bromley police have said two females, aged 13 and 14, have been bailed until April 25 following an incident at Beaverwood School in Beaverwood Road.
News Shopper received a report yesterday afternoon claiming nine girls were sprayed in the face with a chemical substance in the playground at around 11am - and it was said the girls had been targeted by a fellow pupil.
Robbie Nicolson, 43, is the uncle of one of the alleged victims.
He told News Shopper: "The girls were in the school playground and one girl has gone round spraying nine other girls in the face.
"When my niece's mum found out she went straight down there.
"There was skin peeling off her face. She was taken to Queen Mary's Hospital."
A police spokesman confirmed attending the scene and that medical attention was required.
Beaverwood School headteacher Karen Raven said: "Beaverwood School For Girls is proud of the calm and sensible way in which yesterday’s isolated incident was dealt with by students and staff.
"It is business as usual for the school community as exams are underway.
"At break time, a teenager randomly sprayed a can, the contents of which accidently caught some of her friends.
"Only one student was treated in hospital. No other students were involved.
"The school continues to take all appropriate actions."
