Eight boys have been charged in connection with the racial abuse and assault of two adults in Edinburgh.
The youngsters – aged between 12 and 15 years old – were identified following a probe into an incident, which is said to have taken place on Silverknowes Road in the north-west of the capital on Saturday, March 5.
Police Scotland said officers “left no stone stone unturned” in their investigation.
Inspector Jonny Elliott of Drylaw Police Station said: “We are committed to an immediate and robust response when faced with antisocial behaviour.
“We will not tolerate this sort of behaviour and officers left no stone unturned to ensure a positive outcome”.
“I’d like to thank the local community for their support during this enquiry.”
