A bizarre wave of anxiety caused several dozen pupils at a school in North Yorkshire to fall unconscious.
The incident, which occurred at Outwood academy in Ripon, made headline news after reports suggested that chemical fumes or a gas leak might have been making the students ill.
When fire crews and specialist hazardous substance teams attended the scene however it was quickly determined that no noxious chemicals were present and that the children had instead suffered a ‘ripple effect’ of nausea and faintness.
