The threats reportedly said that a bomb had been placed on school grounds, and that it would be detonated if demands were not met.

Herts Police said: "Today we are responding to reports of bomb threats at six schools in Hertfordshire".

Police forces around the country, including those in North Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, all confirmed that the emails were being treated as a hoax.

Some schools were evacuated as a precaution.

The police don't think the threats are credible but are investigating them as a crime.

Police won't confirm which ones got the email, although Schools have been texting parents to say if they have been affected.

No schools have been evacuated and Cambridgeshire Police have told us they're treating this very seriously.

SCHOOLS in Warrington have received hoax bomb threats believed to be coming from the U.S., the council has confirmed.

VeltPVP is a player-verses-player server that sells in-game items and upgrades to players. Carson Kallen, Velt's chief executive, said he's been frequently swatted-the unsafe practice of falsely reporting a crime-in-progress to send police to a person's home.

As can also be seen above, the emails show an association with VeltPvP, a popular Minecraft PVP server company.

It's thought the emails are part of a national hoax targeting schools. We've been being harassed by a group of cyber criminals that are trying to harass us in anyway possible.
