School iPads found smashed on beach

News | Published:

SMASHED iPads found on the beach belonged to Amherst Primary School, it has been learned.

On a Facebook group where islanders share their beach-cleaning finds, Mathew Kneebone posted two pictures of two iPads and cases that he found on Sunday. He told the Guernsey Press that he was cleaning along the beach by the Red Lion pub and spotted one of the iPad cases.‘I thought it was very strange [but] then I found an iPad with a case,’ he said. ‘Both cases were the same and then about 15ft along I found another iPad.’

There were numbers on the back of the iPads which he later learnt were the same as those on the iPads belonging to Amherst Primary School. ‘The puzzle [of whose they were] was solved,’ Mr Kneebone said.

‘So I took them into Amherst [yesterday] morning so they can give them to IT.’

Readers of the post speculated about whether the iPads had been stolen from the school and then dumped.

Amherst Primary was contacted for comment.
