Police don't think the threat is genuine. but the email is being investigated nationally by Scotland Yard.

No arrests for the malicious communications have been made at this time.

Velt issued a statement via Twitter that referred to the hoaxers as "cyber criminals" and stressed that the organization had nothing to do with the bomb threats.

A Herts police spokeswoman said: "We can now confirm that bomb threats made to seven schools in Hertfordshire are being treated as hoaxes".
