Grimsby mum calls for law change on internet harassment after her son was bullied online

17 year old Callum Moody Chapman took his own life

A Grimsby mum, whose son took his own life after being bullied online, is calling for a change in the law against those who troll.

Callum Moody-Chapman, who was 17, was threatened on Facebook in a row over a former girlfriend and although the boy responsible was later prosecuted Callum's mum Nicola says the law needs updating to make ANY harassment online an offence.

It's been five years now since her son's death but she admits it lives with her every day.

Nicola Moody's also now urging other parents to speak with their children, to see whether they too could be being trolled online...or are, themselves, the victims of such abuse.
