Nicola Sturgeon has slammed the 'vile racists' who targeted young children at a school in Glasgow in a torrent of online abuse following a recent visit.

The First Minister made an appearance at St Albert's Primary School in her constituency of Pollokshields in the southside of the city on Friday, September 30 to join pupils in marking Climate Action Week.

The morning was dubbed 'a huge success', with the school saying they were 'delighted' to welcome the SNP politician to the facility as she chatted to youngsters and took part in an assembly on how to tackle global warming.However, after photos of the morning were posted on social media, the school was met with a barrage of racist insults from internet trolls, many of which were directed towards the kids.In response, the school was forced to issue a statement where they described the attack as 'horrific' and and doubled down on their commitment to 'stand as active allies with anti racist and culturally responsive practice.'A spokesperson for the school, located on Maxwell Drive, tweeted: "After an exciting day celebrating our success with our First Minister, we have been subject to the most horrific racist abuse."We are proud to serve our community, proud of our children who demonstrate the best of Scotland.
