Premier spoke to Lahna Pottle from the Christian charity Youth Scape, she said: "it's a great start - I think that we just need to be having these conversations more often. If it's in the curriculum, that's brilliant, it means all young people then have access but we shouldn't just stop at having those conversations in citizenship classes. It's something we need to be talking to our children about".
These figures show the number of teenagers who admit to contributing to the problem. 15% of those asked said they had abused a public figure online. Lahna responded to the fact that these figures are about the culprits being the teenagers themselves by saying: "We hear this story of young people who are experiencing abuse online but those who've said they bullied someone else online said they've been targeted...a lot of the time those who've been bullied go on to bully".
When asked whether cyber bullying is most likely to be on private or on public comments she replied: "Cyber bullying can be texts, WhatsApp...private message generally and that very hard to manage because nobody has access to those messages unless you're a parent and you have access to your child's phone".
