Paramedics have taken 13 children to hospital after ambulances surrounded a school in North London.

The London Ambulance Service (LAS) was called to "reports of an incident" at La Sainte Union Catholic School in Highgate at 11.44am this morning, October 5.

It said in a statement: “We dispatched a number of resources including a clinical team leader, five ambulance crews, medics in cars and incident response officers.”

“We assessed thirteen teenagers at the scene and took them to hospital.”

Dramatic pictures show a raft of ambulances parked outside the school.

The Daily Star has approached the Metropolitan Police and LAS for further comment.

Some of the all-girls school's past pupils include singer Tulisa, hip hop group N-Dubz and actress Imelda Staunton.
