Students Driving School Lark

Two 18 year olds were arrested after driving their cars down a school corridor for a lark on the last day of term.

The sixth formers propped open the front doors of Malmesbury comprehensive school in Wiltshire and drove along the corridor while lessons were taking place.

Headmaster Tim Gillson said: “They are not bad lads, either of them, but have just done something really stupid. It was so stupid and so potentially dangerous. Thankfully no one was injured.”

Police and firemen were called and it was initially feared the building could have been structurally damaged because they had scraped a central pillar. Officers had to drive the vehicles out of the building through a fire exit.

Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “This incident goes to show why police officers should visit schools in their area to give talks on road safety and to emphasise that cars are not play things but serious pieces of equipment.”
