PC Chris Shepherd said: "Since this was reported to us, we have worked closely with the school to identify a number of girls thought to have been involved.

"I am, however, still looking to identify a number of girls involved and also speak to people who were in the area at that time and who saw what happened.

"I’d also ask any parents who think their child may have been involved or know something about the incident to contact either police or the school.W
