Welsh School Kids Pepper Sprayed in Amusing Police Mix-up

By Gary Cutlack on at

Police doing a bit of community work at a school in Wales embarrassed themselves during a pepper spray demo, by accidentally using real pepper spray on the kids instead of a dummy mixture.

Eight children, aged around four or five, were sprayed at Ysgol Gymraeg Gilfach Fargoed primary, as officers started drumming riot procedures into them young. Gwent Police apologised to kids and parents, and no children had their eyes melted out, so it is OK to laugh. [Metro]
