4:00pm Monday 14th April 2014 in News
A CYBERBULLYING victim who is leading a campaign encouraging websites to protect their users from abuse has had his story featured on TV.
Tom Bryant, of Harwich, experienced online abuse himself and is calling for an “anti-bullying” button to be installed across websites, including chat rooms and social networking sites, such as Facebook.
The 23-year-old was featured on ITV News Anglia last week and said he fears cyberbullying may be contributing to some suicides in young people.
He said: “Unfortunately, more and more young people are getting bullied on social media."
