TWO boys were beaten up by a cowardly group of bullies while they walked home from school.

The victims, aged just 11 and 14, were walking along Gale Street, Dagenham, on Friday December 14 at 3.50pm.

A group of youths aged between 14 and 18, all taller than 6ft, approached and hit the younger boys a number of times around the face and body before making off.

A passer-by called an ambulance but the youngsters did not need to go to hospital.
