A 15-year-old Sikh boy who claimed he had his hair cut off by racist thugs has admitted he made the attack up.
The boy from Edinburgh reported the alleged racist attack in November and the case was widely publicised.
The cutting of his hair was an act which was seen as deeply insulting to the Sikh faith.
Lothian and Borders Police confirmed the attack had not taken place and said the boy had expressed remorse. They said no further action would be taken. [Link]
