(KENT ONLINE) An urgent investigation has been launched after a school handed the wrong six-year-old girl to a grandfather – and he did not notice.

The pensioner went to Gillingham’s Napier Primary School on Tuesday morning to pick up his granddaughter for a doctor’s appointment.

But instead of taking his granddaughter out of class, staff brought a different girl in the same year with the same first name.
