Police investigate numerous hoax school calls

5:01 pm on 25 February 2016

Police are investigating the source of numerous hoax calls to schools throughout the country today.

Yesterday two schools evacuated students for a short time after threatening calls, but were given the all clear to return.

Police say they have not established any actual threat and think the people responsible are ringing from overseas even though the calls may display a New Zealand number.
