Tyreese Garrod, Alex Holmes of the Diana Award charity and anti-bullying ambassador and actor Adam Deacon discuss the importance of standing up to bullying.
In 2004, Tyreese Garrod's twelve year old cousin committed suicide after regularly being bullied. His story inspired Tyreese to become an anti-bullying ambassador.
As part of anti-bullying week, he is encouraging others to speak up against anyone bullying them.
He discusses his work, his memories of his cousin and the importance of the anti-bullying movement with Alex Holmes and Adam Deacon.
Alex explains the work of the Diana Award to combat bullying and we hear from all three on the rise of cyber bullying and the increasing hardships for young people, many of whom find it difficult to ever escape the permanent online presence of bullies.
Actor and rapper Adam Deacon explains why he feels so strongly about the issue and how bullying slips under the playground gates, onto screens and often into the workplace too.
