PARENTS have been warned after a child was rushed to hospital after eating a blue tablet found in a school playground.
Police sent the urgent warning on social media after they received reports Friday that a haul of blue pills had been found at Trallwng Infants School in Pontypridd.
Wales Online reported a South Wales Police spokesman said: “We want to alert parents and guardians of children at the school to ensure that the pupils know not to touch or consume the tablets,” the statement said.
“If you suspect your child may have taken a blue tablet and they feel unwell or has had an adverse reaction then please seek medical help immediately.
“We would urge anyone who finds any of these tablets to report them to us as soon as possible quoting reference number 2100328507.”
This comes after a school in Northampton was evacuated after a false widow spider was spotted.
Around 1,300 students were sent home from Malcolm Arnold Academy yesterday morning after the creepy-crawly sighting at around 11am.
The school reassured parents they were "simply acting with caution" and said they called in pest control to sweep classrooms.
But it is not the first time the school have had a spider scare - as a large false widow infestation was discovered in the technology centre department in October 2018.
False widow spiders are often confused with the more dangerous black widow species.
Although they do bite, false widows rarely attack humans.
