A mother has voiced her outrage after she discovered a video of her 11-year-old son being beaten up in a playground on Facebook.
In the footage, the schoolboy is knocked to the ground by an older child who sits on him and repeatedly punches him in the head. A jeering mob then surrounded them and appeared to shout ‘spit in his face’.
The victim’s mother, who asked not to be named, said she was left feeling ‘sick in her stomach’ when it emerged the video had been watched more than 1,300 times. The fight happened at a playground in Bristol while the boy was visiting his grandmother’s house.
Eventually two other boys intervened and stopped the fight. The worried parent described the boy as ‘shaken’ by his experience, less than a month before he will begin secondary school.
