25 November 2012 Last updated at 19:46 GMT

Cyberbullying is a growing problem with attacks often having a lasting effect on the victims.

Inside Out looks at two victims of internet bullying who have decided to find a solution to the problem.

Seventeen-year-old Conor, a student and musician from Shropshire, was bullied on a website where people could vote on whether or not he was a 'jerk'.

Geonelle Martin from north-west England was subjected to personal attacks from a man she met on holiday including racist comments and death threats.

Former boxer Richie Woodhall finds out how victims can fight back against the vitriol posted by cyberbullies with Chris Emmins, an expert in 'online reputation management'.

BBC Inside Out is broadcast on BBC One West Midlands at 19:30 GMT on Monday, 26 November and nationwide on the iPlayer for seven days thereafter.
