Suspicious email

Further to the letter sent out regarding a bomb threat, LGfL has confirmed that they are aware of the email circulating to schools across the UK. It is an example of ransomware and should not be a cause for alarm. Their filtering systems have now blocked this email and steps are being taken to remove it and prevent it spreading any further. The incident has been reported to the police as a crime and LGfL will see what additional steps can be take in future to minimise the risk of similar emails reaching school.
