A GROUP OF BOYS has been expelled from an illustrious London Catholic school after a film of them taking drugs was allegedly posted on YouTube, the popular video sharing website.
The teenage pupils of the London Oratory the school attended by former Prime Minister Tony Blair's children are said to have put a clip of themselves smoking cannabis on the site.
It was reportedly watched by other pupils on the intemet and then discovered by staff. Seven 15-year-old boys were believed to be involved in the video.
They were immediately expelled by the headmaster, David McFadden.
He said this week: "Several pupils were excluded as a result of drug allegations. The cases are still being considered under due process so it would be inappropriate to comment further."
Some of the boys have appealed against the decision and will be told of the outcome next week.
One report quoted a school source saying: "Staff were horrified when word reached them that pupils were taking drugs on YouTube.
The boys were expelled before their feet touched the ground. The headmaster is determined to preserve the good name of the school."
