Terrified schoolchildren were forced to evacuate the playground after an aggressive squirrel caused havoc and attacked a teacher.

Staff had to lead the children to safety at Watford's Chater Infants School after an "unusually aggressive" grey squirrel disrupted their afternoon playtime.

One member of staff was attacked and scratched by the squirrel during the encounter.

Headteacher at the Southsea Avenue school, Mrs Amrit Bal-Richards, said they were monitoring the situation and the caretaker is being extra vigilant, but fortunately the squirrel had not been seen again.

She said: "We did have an incident where we had a squirrel. It is very uncommon for a squirrel to be aggressive. It was quite bad tempered. We will be monitoring the situation and the caretaker is being extra vigilant.
