Why I shared footage of bullies assaulting my daughter
The attack happened on Friday. I didn’t post it until the Sunday, because I found out the girl who had attacked her was going around laughing about it, showing people the video. I thought if you want everyone to see it... I didn’t want to do it originally as it’s not a very nice film.
– Mum Claire Walton
It’s the latest video to go viral - a heartbroken mum deciding to post a shocking video of her daughter being beaten up in an attempt to shame those responsible.
Claire Walton found footage showing her 13-year-old daughter Hollie being grabbed by her hair and thrown around as she walked home from school on Friday afternoon. Claire has decided to remove her daughter from the school and police say they're investigating, but why are schoolchildren still being subjected to such behaviour?
We're joined by Claire and Hollie on the sofa today, alongside Lucy Alexander who first launched our Be Kind campaign.
