Bullied model builds 'army' to promote better body image

A model who was bullied about her size has been touring schools trying to promote body confidence among children.

Iskra Lawrence, 25, originally from Worcestershire, faced criticism online about the fact she was a size 14. In response she posed for pictures with packets of crisps.

She has started a campaign called Iskra's Army and is hoping to persuade children to join her positive-attitude crusade.

It began in Worcestershire where she visited Hanley Castle High School, Pershore High School and her former school, Malvern St James.
