Boy, 16, Locked Up For Circulating Explicit Video Of 14-Year-Old Girl At School

A teenager has been detained after he circulated an explicit video of a 14-year-old girl to fellow pupils at her school.

The 16-year-old bullied the young girl for months, calling her "fat", until she relented and sent him a video of her stripping, as well as a naked picture of herself.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, then sent both to the girl's friends and the material made its way around her school, the Daily Mail reported.

The teenager was sentenced at Peterborough Youth Court to 10 months at a young offenders' institute

The boy was told by the chairman of the bench his actions were "horrendous".

"What you did will have a lasting effect on her."
