A police spokeswoman said: 'Thames Valley Police was called to reports of a person being in possession of an air rifle near Moorland Primary School in Church End Lane, Reading, Berkshire.
'On arrival, a child was in possession of an unloaded air rifle, with no access to ammunition.
'The weapon was removed by the parents of the child and taken to another address.'Not confiscated then? Like it would be had this been anyone else.
'There were reassurance patrols around school closing time and will be again in the morning [Friday], although the situation has been resolved and the family involved were given advice.'Why would anyone be reassured by the UK Police?
