Southport school kids busted for skipping class at KFC

Southport school kids busted for skipping class at KFC

Children from a local high school decided to take part in a sociology lesson this afternoon when they were arrested by police, Friday 13 January 2017.

Eager to find out how a local constabulary operates, the keen students took it upon themselves to leave school grounds and alight to a nearby location – their choice being KFC restaurant on Eastbank Street.

For purely research purposes, they claimed, police were soon called to the location and began common procedure to put them under temporary police custody before returning them to school.

They later learnt that this entire operation is called truancy, which no doubt they will be taught how to spell correctly during the long spell they now have in detention.

A spokesperson for Merseyside Police confirmed to OTS that a number of local schoolchildren were found to have skipped class and were later caught at KFC.
