A police investigation is currently under way after a number of students were involved in seemingly organised public fights at an Aberdeenshire school.
The incident took place yesterday at around 1.15pm within the vicinity of the school.
The youngsters, who appear to be of different ages, are seen throwing brutal punches and kicks at each other in a circle formed by dozens of other students.
One of the pupils involved in the fights is confirmed to have sustained minor injuries.
Several of those gathered can be seen holding phones and filming the incident, however, nobody is seen to make an attempt to break the spar off.
Police were called to intervene after receiving reports of the disturbance with inquiries still ongoing.
Appeal for information launched
Education bosses have now said the issue has been taken “seriously” and those taking part have been approached.
An Aberdeenshire Council spokesman said: “We take issues of fighting among our young people seriously. We are working with those involved.
“We are grateful to Police Scotland for their prompt and professional response to this incident.”
A police spokesman said: “Around 1.15pm on Thursday, November 11, officers were called to Banff Academy, following a report of a disturbance involving a number of pupils, one of whom sustained minor injuries.
“Inquiries into the incident remain ongoing and anyone with information or potential footage should call police on 101, quoting incident 1559 of November 11.”
