Cartoon Knife Causes Alert In Luton

A school in Luton raised concerns when a 4 year old drew a knife that was bigger than the man holding it.

It was claimed that the picture was supposed to be the boy's Dad cutting a cucumber, but the teacher misheard and thought the boy had said "cookie bomb".

The mother refused to sign a form that would have referred the child and the child's family to a de-radicalisation programme, to be investigated for terrorism.

The mother turned to BBC Three Counties Radio to raise the issue with the media. BBC presenter, JVS, tweeted the picture.
