Children attacking parents in West Midlands 'shocking'

There have been a "shocking" number of attacks by young people on their parents, according to police.

West Midlands Police said just under 400 children aged between 13 and 17 were involved in some form of domestic violence last year.

The figures for attacks on parents are not recorded separately.

David Jamieson, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, said: "Whatever number there is I think it's quite a shocking figure."
