Children as young as four are acting out scenes from violent computer games in school playgrounds, headteachers have warned.

John Killeen, head of South Cave Church of England school in Brough, North Yorkshire, and an executive member of the National Association of Head Teachers, said he had become "aware of children playing inappropriate games they have seen on software. We're talking about children as young as four".

He added that the children were used to seeing their computer characters "jumping back up and carrying on," after serious fights.
