A teacher has been stabbed to death in a class full of students at a Leeds school.

The student launched an attack on Spanish Teacher. Anne Maguire, 61,

She was rushed to hospital and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have arrested a 15-year-old boy.

The incident occurred at Corpus Christi Catholic College

A Police said the victim received a number of stab wounds and a knife was recovered from the scene.

He said the 15-year-old pupil was detained by other teaching staff and arrested in connection with the stabbing.

“The incident itself was over very quickly and no other pupils or staff were threatened or injured. However this has clearly been a very traumatic situation for those involved,” Mr Money said.

He said the attack was an “unprecedented event” and schools in Leeds were “generally very safe places” to work and study.

Staff members were “in shock” and Mrs Maguire’s death would “understandably have a massive impact” on her family and the school, he added.
