“Emergency services remain at scene and the school has been closed while investigations continue.

“We are working closely with the school and Carmarthenshire County Council."

Police said there was footage of the incident circulating on social media sites.

"We would ask that this is removed to avoid contempt of court and distress to those affected," said the police statement.

“We would ask the people do not speculate while there is a police investigation ongoing.”

A Carmarthenshire council spokesperson said: “The family members of all injured persons have been informed.

“We would like to reassure parents and the public that the incident has been contained.”

Wales Air Ambulance confirmed that three critical care teams were sent to an incident in Ammanford at 11.30am on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman said: “Our Dafen and Welshpool based crew were mobilised by air and our Cardiff based crew was mobilised by road. Unfortunately, we cannot comment any further.”

Home Secretary James Cleverly said his thoughts are with the people affected.

Mr Cleverly posted on X: “I am being kept informed about the events in Ammanford, Wales.

“My thoughts are with the school and all those involved.

“I want to thank the police & emergency service for their ongoing response. It is important they are given the space to carry out their investigations.”
