A teenager who took his own life after being blackmailed by strangers online is "every parent's worst nightmare", his mother has said.
Nicola Perry said that Daniel, 17, was left traumatised by the ordeal. She added:
Whoever was at the other end of that computer did not know Daniel. They didn't care that he was a loving and caring person with his whole life ahead of him. To them, he was just another faceless victim to exploit for cash.
Losing Daniel has left us all devastated and we are still trying to come to terms with what has happened.
