Cyberbullying: 'I was bullied in my own home'

A committee of MPs has said schools in England are not doing enough to tackle cyberbullying and online abuse.

Guidelines have been issued but the Education Select Committee is looking into whether they are effective enough.

The effects of bullying in school, whether online or face-to-face, can be devastating, with around 16,000 children in England missing from school as a result.

Diva was the victim of cyberbullies for several years and spoke to the BBC about what is was like to be bullied even when in her own home.
