Canadian Shames UK 15 year old Cyberbully

In a week where we’ve had school assemblies placing the spotlight on cyber safety (reported here on the BBC) it is fitting that we read how a Canadian woman tracked down the 15 year old English boy who’d been leaving negative and hateful comments under her Instagram photos. Jessica Davey-Quantick contacted the boy’s parents and also his school where he had his phone confiscated and was temporarily excluded (suspended).
