Hanged boy's mother calls for anti-bullying law

A mother whose 12-year-old son hanged himself has started a campaign to make bullying a criminal offence.

Dylan Stewart died six days after he was found unconscious in April 2013 in the family's home in Telford, Shropshire.

His mother, Amanda Stewart - who has since moved to Stoke-on-Trent -said Dylan had been physically and verbally attacked by other children.
