Standing up to the bullies

The Labour Party leader Ed Miliband has been in Sussex today to see a school's ground-breaking work to tackle homophobic bullying. Blatchington Mill in Hove has appointed some of its students as "equality commissioners" to challenge prejudice.

The school says it's vital that all youngsters feel safe and valued, or their education can be seriously affected.
