A mother who was targeted by an online bully after her teenage son died in a motorbike accident says she's encouraged her case is being heard in the Houses of Parliament.

Hours after Jordan Agar's death his family were sent messages from a fake Facebook account in his name claiming the 16-year-old from Staffordshire was still alive.

A 21-year-old man from Burton-on-Trent was arrested 5 months later, but received just a police caution meaning he'll stay anonymous.

Now Bridget Agar's local MP Andrew Griffiths is asking the Attorney General Dominic Grieve MP to review the case, so that so called 'internet trolls' can't hide behind the law.

Bridget received messages from a fake Facebook page set up in her son's name with messages such as "don't worry Mum I am not dead I just ran away".

Here she explains how she and other people who knew her son before he died, were the victims of internet trolling.

Bridget says that although at times she's considered suicide, she is now more positive about the future.

She says this is partly because she is having her case highlighted in the Houses of Parliament, which has allowed her to 'stand tall'.

She also hopes that something good can come from her family's ordeal at the hands of her typing tormentor, and that a review of the law into how internet trolls are dealt with and punished, can be Jordan's lasting legacy.
