TEACHERS at a Liverpool girls' school called in police after finding X-rated mobile phone footage showing a 13- year-old pupil having sex.

Police today confirmed they were examining the video, which also shows the teenager performing a sex act on a man.

Parents said the clip had "done the rounds" of Holly Lodge girls' college for the past week. Head teacher at the 1,400-pupil West Derby school Julia Tinsley confirmed the matter was now in the hands of the police.

Merseyside police told the ECHO detectives were now an a lysing the clip.

If the sex scenes involving a minor prove genuine, there could be criminal proceedings.

Parents said pupils said the footage had been "sent across the school and city" by mobile phone.

One furious father said: "My daughter came home very upset at what she'd seen. The footage shows a girl in her year having sex and engaged in a sex act, which for the past week has been doing the rounds at the school and across the city.

"When pupils at school can freely access material of a minor having sex, then something is wrong."

A police spokesman said: "We are investigating the distribution of inappropriate images at a secondary school via mobile phones."

The girl in the clip and her friends will be interviewed in the probe.

The spokesman said: "We are working in partnership with staff at the school,who moved quickly on this matter."

Headteacher Mrs Tinsley said: "It would be inappropriate to comment other than to say the matter is now in the hands of the police."

In its last Of sted inspection the school was ranked good, the second highest grade.
