Three children aged 13 have been wounded in a shooting at a school in the Finnish city of Vantaa, police say.

Police say they responded to the incident at Viertola school before 09:00 (06:00 GMT) on Tuesday and urged local residents to remain indoors.

A suspect, who police say is also aged 13, has been arrested.

The school has 800 students and 90 staff. Witnesses told public broadcaster YLE that two ambulances had left the scene.

Viertola school has students aged seven to 15 of both primary and middle-school age. Like other Finnish schools, children had just returned to classes after the long Easter weekend.
