A mum called 999 and accused her child’s primary school of kidnapping after they refused her request for an early finish.

Lucy England, whose child attended Holywell Village First School in Northumberland, had already been given an injunction to keep away from the head teacher and business manager at the primary school, as a result of her “history of abuse” and “toxic” behaviour.

A court heard how the school had received an email from a relative in November last year, asking if England’s child could be released at 2.45pm, rather than 3pm, Chronicle Live reports.

When the 32-year-old mum arrived at the school gates, where the headteacher and manager were present, and found her request had been refused, she contacted the police.

Prosecutor Omar Ahmad told Newcastle Crown Court: “The defendant called 999 and reported to the police that the school had kidnapped her child.”

A Police Community Support Officer was sent to the school to mediate, which resulted in England being arrested the following day.

In March this year England saw the school business manager, who was with her husband and mother, by chance during a shopping trip to B&M.

England shouted “there’s no injunction that stops me shopping at B&M, love” during the confrontation that followed.

Mr Ahmad said the civil injunction was imposed on England at North Shields County Court in North Tyneside last October after her “abuse” towards the headteacher and school manager became “more personal and focused on them”.

He said: “The defendant was making constant remarks about their appearance and suitability for their job.”

England, of Blackhaugh Drive, Seaton Deleval, Northumberland, has admitted three charges of breach of the civil injunction order.

Judge Amanda Rippon said the situation was “toxic because of her behaviour”.

Judge Rippon told England: “Calling the police and suggesting the school had kidnapped your child was a dreadful thing to do.”

England was sentenced to nine months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, with rehabilitation requirements and a five year restraining order to keep her away from the women and the school.

Kelly Sharif, defending, said a “toxic situation” had developed between those involved and England’s children no longer attend that school.

Miss Sharif said there has been no trouble recently and the family are now “happy and settled”.

The court heard England, who is a single parent, works as a part time cleaner.
