Injured teachers and pupil discharged from hospital, Police maintain presence

TWO teachers and a pupil who were injured in a stabbing incident at a school in Carmarthenshire have been discharged from hospital, according to the police.

This development follows a statement from the brother of one of the teachers involved in restraining the girl accused of the attack. He expressed humility, stating that he does not perceive himself as a hero.

The incident occurred at Ysgol Dyffryn Aman (Amman Valley School) in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, on Wednesday morning. Subsequently, a teenage girl was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody.

The teachers harmed in the assault have been identified as Fiona Elias, the deputy head, and Liz Hopkin, a special needs teacher.

Confirming the discharge of the victims, a spokeswoman for Dyfed-Powys Police stated on Thursday.

Carmarthenshire Superintendent Ross Evans stated, “Given the severity of this incident, a police presence will be maintained at the school throughout the day. Our officers at the scene will be collecting evidence to support the investigation, while other specialised teams will analyse information submitted via our dedicated web page.”

He continued, “We recognise the community’s heightened level of concern as they come to terms with the incident. We encourage anyone affected by yesterday’s events to seek support and refrain from sharing any videos, photos, or information that may cause further distress to pupils or parents at the school.”
