A St Albans schoolboy has been airlifted to hospital after reports regarding concerns for his welfare.

Officers were called to The Marlborough Science Academy, off Watling Street, at 8.40am yesterday (November 1), with an ambulance, ambulance officer vehicle, rapid response vehicle and the East Anglian Air Ambulance all rushing to the scene.

The boy was airlifted to a London hospital for treatment.
