Children as young as six have been acting out drug and rape scenes from Grand Theft Auto in the PLAYGROUND, says headteacher
Primary school pupils as young as six are re-enacting drug and rape scenes from Grand Theft Auto in the playground, a headteacher has warned.
Young children have been initiating games involving 'simulating rape and sexual intercourse' as well as having playground chats about 'drug use', according to Coed-y-Brain Primary School head Morian Morgan.
Staff at the school in Llanbradach, Caerphilly, blame the behaviour on the violent computer game series Grand Theft Auto, which sees players take on the role of criminals in America.
Latest instalment GTA V is thought to be one of the best-selling video games of all time, having sold more than 32 million copies worldwide.
A letter sent to parents said children were 'acting out scenes from the game which include the strongest of sexual swear words', 'having conversations' about sexual acts and 'play acting extremely violent games that sometimes result in actual injury'.
