A man has been arrested and charged in connection with an investigation where threatening letters were sent to three schools in Watford.

On Tuesday, April 16, malicious letters containing threats were allegedly sent to Watford Grammar School for Girls, Bromet Primary School and Ascot Road Community Free School.

Police officers from Watford’s local crime unit have been working closely with schools throughout the investigation. Headteachers have been keeping the wider school community, including parents and guardians, updated.

A 38 year old man from St Albans, who was arrested last week in connection with the investigation, remains released under investigation at this time.

Watford Chief Inspector Matt Phillips said: “We’re not currently seeking anyone else in connection with this investigation and I’d like to reassure the community that there is no on-going risk to the public.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the leaders of the schools involved. They have worked closely with us and have been supportive throughout this investigation.”
