The mum of a teen girl who was viciously kicked in the head by a gang of youths has slammed her daughter's school for failing to notify her about the incident.
The schoolgirl, 15, who had been trying to stop the gang from battering her pal, was left needing brain scans following the violent attack just yards from the entrance of Lochaber High in Fort William.
Shocking video footage emerged of the incident showing a group of feral youths attacking the two young girls on Monday afternoon.
But the mum, who does not wish for her daughter's identity to be shared, told the Daily Record that she only heard about what happened after she was told by another parent.
She said: "I found out when the mum of one of the girls involved called me to apologise. She was driving past when she saw it and ran to stop it. I then called the mum of the other girl who was hurt to tell her that something had happened at the school.
"I tried to call the school on Monday but they wouldn’t tell me anything. I drove down to get my daughter and we went to the police station to report it.
"The school should have phoned me straight away. It's absolutely disgusting. A teacher broke up the fight, but the school never contacted me until Tuesday.
"My daughter even asked them to call me four times after it happened because she lost her phone during the incident."
The worried mum said she believes her daughter is 'lucky to be alive' after the attack and that she had to rush her to hospital after swelling developed on her head.
She added: "I had to take her into the hospital because her head started to swell up at the back. She started feeling dizzy and sick. She could have had a bleed on the brain or anything. We were there until 11pm getting her checked over.
