It came after footage went viral of the Syrian boy, 15, being held down by his throat and having water poured on his face.

The CPS said there was insufficient evidence to charge the suspect with racially aggravated assault over the incident at Almondbury school in Huddersfield in October.

A statement from West Yorks Police said:  “A review of the case was undertaken to investigate whether there was a racially aggravated element to the offence.

“A file was submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for their consideration.


“The CPS has concluded that there was not sufficient evidence to charge the suspect with a racially aggravated assault and he was given a caution for a section 39 assault.

“The victim and his family have been kept updated throughout the process.”
