The North West Ambulance Service said a patient from the school was taken to hospital in an ambulance. It is not clear if this was a student or a staff member.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Crews were also seen parked up outside the school building, also known as Brookway High School, just before 11am.

A text message sent to parents from the school said some students have suffered a reaction after an 'aerosol' was brought into school.
