TWO schoolgirls have been arrested and charged after another girl was filmed apparently being viciously attacked.

Footage posted online appears to show the 14-year-old victim being kicked in the face repeatedly.

The girl, who is believed to be Polish, was said to have suffered a broken nose after being dragged around the street and struck ten times on the head.

A Police Scotland spokesman said today two girls had been detained: “Two 14-year-old girls have been arrested and charged following an assault on another girl in Pilton on Friday, January 9.

“Both will be reported to the Children’s Reporter.”

The incident is believed to have happened in West Pilton Avenue on Friday and later posted online.
