Leicestershire schoolgirl with dwarfism 'dropped on head'

A girl with dwarfism has told of being held upside down and dropped on her head by a group of school bullies.

Ellie Spokes, 14, was attacked at Rawlins Academy in Quorn, Leicestershire, but says she is simply focused on her dream of becoming a Paralympic swimmer.

The school told the BBC it has effective behaviour policies and anti-bullying practices in place.
