A schoolboy was attacked by a gang of four teenagers as he was walking home, say police.

The boy, from Cleator Moor, was attacked on High Street on Tuesday after school at the back of the Ladbrokes bookmakers.

The teenagers are believed to be between 13 and 14 years old.

One is described as wearing an orange hoody, another was wearing a green track suit.

A police spokesman said: "The assault was totally unprovoked and the victim is very shaken."

Police are now appealing for witnesses or information on the attackers identity.
