A variety of dangerous weapons have been discovered in Sussex schools, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

Ten of those found to have weapons on them in the schools were aged between 18-44, implying that in some cases these may have been staff members.

The Brighton Argus report:

Scores of knives and daggers have been seized in Sussex schools.

Police have also found air guns, imitation weapons, metal and wooden bars, a hammer, a catapult, three bottles, a cosh and a razor.

The weaponry was discovered at sites across the county, including at six schools in Worthing, nine in Brighton and Hove and seven in Chichester.
