Bath College has been closed to all pupils and staff today after it was evacuated this morning following reports of a ‘bomb threat’.
Both campuses, in the centre of Bath and in Radstock, have been closed, and Bath College has confirmed they will remain closed until Monday.
Students are reported to have been evacuated from various buildings in the city centre shortly before 11am this morning.
A number of schools and colleges across the country received malicious threats this morning, but police say they are not credible.
