It then cuts to a very graphic shot that appears to show a girl being beheaded.

‘It has left my daughter upset’

Rachel Dawson said that her 13-year-old daughter was sent a link to the video.

She told the Portsmouth News: “When she opened it she dropped the phone and went white.

“I asked what was wrong, I viewed the video and it was of a male actually cutting off a girl’s head, it’s very graphic.”

The video has been taken down from TikTok but is still circulating on other social media platforms.

Rachel added: “I just want parents to be aware so they know to observe their children because this video has left my daughter quite upset.

“I don’t want another child to suffer or be traumatised.

“It’s a vile video.’
