Primary school teachers have been bitten, headbutted and attacked with knives by pupils at some schools in Yorkshire, the BBC has learnt.

The number of children suspended for attacks in the region rose from at least 396 in 2011-12 to 623 last year, figures obtained by the BBC reveal.

One West Yorkshire teacher said she was punched in the chest by a five-year-old boy who went on to be suspended.
