A woman has been arrested after allegedly breaking into Prince George’s primary school.

The 40-year-old was arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary after the incident at Thomas’s Battersea on Tuesday.

Prince George’s first day at the south London school, which educates about 560 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13, was last Thursday.
