5 barred in autism bully row.

FIVE college pupils have been suspended for bullying an autistic boy and putting clips of the cruel taunting on the net.

The 17-year-old victim was teased in class while the lads filmed his reaction on a camera phone.

The boy shouts out in pain when a student flicks his ear and defiantly tells the gang: "You're not happy slapping me."

In one clip, the gang force him to read out a written apology.

When he later walks away from the abuse, one student shouts: "Where's the retard going?"

Film of the bullying at Bournemouth and Poole College in Dorset has now been removed from You Tube's comedy area.

Helen Owen, of autism group ASUR, said: "The clips disgusted me."

The bully boys, aged 17 and 18, could be permanently banned. The college said: "We will not tolerate anti-social activity."
