Horrific video footage captures the moment two teenage ‘bullies’ launch a vicious attack on a 12-year-old girl, while she tearfully begs for them to stop in front of a baying crowd of schoolchildren.
Mobile phone footage widely circulated online the helpless victim being grabbed by her hair and punched four times while begging for mercy.
While in later footage, which MailOnline has chosen not to show, the vile bully kicks the crying girl twice in the head and then stamps on her face.

The shocking act of bullying was filmed in Margate on Thursday afternoon – and it appears the attackers were goaded by other schoolchildren.
A girl is heard to shout ‘bang her’ before the assault began.
The victim, a pupil at Charles Dickens School in Broadstairs, was taken to hospital for treatment for head injuries.
Her devastated mother posted on Facebook to say watching the video had left her sick to her stomach.
She wrote: ‘As you all are aware there is a video on social media of a fight on an innocent lil girl who begged for it not to happen. Well that girl was my daughter.
‘My baby, in fact, and we just got back from the hospital as she got some head injuries, to find a video of this all over social media is disgusting and the girls that stood and filmed and done nothing are just as bad as the girl that done the assault.
‘I’m absolutely devastated and sick to my stomach. My lil girl is now home with her loved ones. I hope justice will be done.’

Kirstin Cardus, executive head teacher at The Charles Dickens School, says the safety of its pupils is paramount,
She said: ‘The school is aware of the very serious incident yesterday after school, where one of our Year 8 female students was physically attacked and violently assaulted whilst walking home in school uniform.
‘Whilst the attack did not happen near the school we are still very concerned that one of our students was attacked on their way travelling home.
‘The student was attacked by a former student of the school. The Charles Dickens School does not tolerate any form of physical violence. We are shocked by what we have seen.
‘Our thoughts are with our own student and her family at this very difficult time.

‘We can reassure you that we will do everything in our power to protect the safety of all our pupils as this is of paramount importance to us as a caring and supportive school community.
‘We would like to reiterate to parents that the young person who assaulted our student does not attend The Charles Dickens School.’

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the victim, and hundreds of pounds has already been donated.
The brutal assault comes just days after a young Syrian refugee was beaten and humiliated in a playground attack that shocked the nation.
While in another all too familiar chapter, an army of violent teens in Durham were filmed launching fireworks and missiles at police in an attack described as ‘appalling’.
And just this morning footage emerged of a young boy being set upon by a savage group of teens who battered him with weapons including an metal pole and bike saddle.
