Police Scotland is probing a sickening video of extreme bullying at a Perth secondary school.
The clip, which has been shared on social media, shows a first year pupil being assaulted by a group of older children.
The young victim, 12, is seen being pushed, grabbed, thrown onto the ground and kicked, while several other boys stand around and laugh. At least one of his attackers is 16-years-old.
Several boys have been excluded following the incident, including ones who used their phones to film the attack.
The attack happened in the grounds of Perth Academy on Thursday lunchtime. Pupils from nearby Perth High have been blamed for carrying out the assault.
