The father of a schoolboy who hanged himself after being bullied relentlessly on the school bus has called for urgent support for young victims.
Paul Vodden's 11-year-old son Ben endured name calling, gesturing and swearing on school bus journeys.
The merciless bullying became too much for Ben - a pupil at Tanbridge House School in Horsham, Sussex - and he hanged himself in his bedroom in December 2006.
Since then, Mr Vodden has attempted to tackle the issues surrounding bullying on school bus journeys and has been on a crusade to help others.
He has now produced a report, with funding from the anti-bullying charity, the Diana Award, which highlights how bullying often starts on the school bus.
