Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

A 15 year old girl was driven to suicide after being bullied by other girls. She killed herself by jumping off a bridge onto a motorway, and she was hit by traffic. Reference

It was revealed that Holly, who went to £11,600-a-year St Edward’s School in Charlton Kings, Gloucestershire, had suffered months, if not years, of cyber-bullying.

A friend, Chloe Davis, 16, said Holly had moved to the fee-paying Catholic school in the past year to escape her tormentors.

She added: ‘Holly was nice and had the biggest smile in the world. She always did well at school but the other girls used to pick on her. She didn’t have any confidence, that was the problem.

Girls used to gang up on her and call her names and she didn’t have anything to say back. She just froze up. They used to leave comments on her Facebook wall, calling her names. They’ve probably all deleted them now.’

Chloe added: ‘I heard that the girls who bullied her at her old school told their friends at her new school to bully her as well and so it just kept on and on.
