Her mum Lindy, 57, has criticised police over a lack of action and said when they went to the police station for an interview, nobody was there. However, police have said a misunderstanding meant the pair went to the wrong station.

Graphic video footage of the incident, which was shared with The Gazette, shows Gabriella on the floor scuffling with another girl.

The girl can be seen grabbing Gabriella by her hair and kicking her in the head, while another girl kicks her body.

Lindy said: “I was absolutely shocked, devastated and crying. That’s my little girl with two people punching her and kicking her. No parent wants to see that.

“Gabriella came home in a lot of pain and she was distraught. She said she knew something was broken.”

Gabriella, a Lytham High School pupil, was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital and was allowed to go home the following morning.

The incident was reported to the police, but Lindy said: “A police officer came around a few days later but he didn’t seem overly concerned.

“Gabriella was invited for a video interview at the police station at 6pm on the Monday, and we turned up and there was no-one there. I sent them a message and nobody responded to me, and nothing has happened since.

“It’s horrific what has happened and as far as I know nothing has been done.

“This goes beyond playground bullying and name-calling. It could have been much worse. I don’t want that to happen to any young girl in the future.”

A police spokesman confirmed the incident had been reported shortly before midnight on July 6.

While no arrests have been made, the incident is being investigated alongside a number of other linked offences. Inquiries, which were furthered delayed by an officer going on sick leave, are ongoing, the force said.
