AN autistic teenager was ‘beaten up outside Oak Furniture on Lottbridge Drove.’

Three men and one woman helped the boy, aged 15, at 5pm on Tuesday.

The trio also assisted his sister, 13, who was in a state trying to seek help.

Barbara Silburn Smith has posted: “I would really like to find who these people are who helped – they probably saved his life and I thank them so much for stopping.”
