The trend for dumb pupils to post incriminating videos of themselves on YouTube has spread to Bulgaria.

Four teenage pupils have been expelled from Vassil Zlatarski, the country's first International Baccalaureate school. The 15- and 16-year-olds filmed themselves breaking one of the school's heaters and burning a jacket they claimed belonged to the headmistress, although it actually belonged to them.

They were caught out after the head's daughter looked the school up on the internet and found that the first link was to a video, called "Vassil Zlatarski fuck school".

"It wasn't hard to identify them at all," a classmate said, "because the idiots not only showed their faces but had a list of the cast at the end of the movie with their full names, which class they were from and what each of them did."
