Police are investigating an online video which appears to show a schoolgirl being assaulted in Bury St Edmunds by two other girls.
The video emerged on Facebook over the weekend and sparked widespread condemnation, after appearing to show the girls punching and kicking the teenager.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said today (Tuesday, December 10) that inquiries were ongoing into the alleged attack and no arrests had been made.
The incident is believed to have happened earlier this month as the girl, a pupil at St Benedict's Catholic School in Beeton Lane, walked along adjoining Anglian Lane.
Headteacher Imogen Senior said: "We are aware of an incident being dealt with by police where one of our students was the victim.

"This is obviously a serious concern for us but it would be wholly inappropriate to discuss this as we would seek to protect the privacy of our student and would not comment on an ongoing police investigation."
