On 18 January, Nicole Fox Fenton, affectionately known to her family as "Coco", died by suicide. Nicole was 21 and had her whole life in front of her. Nicole's mother, Jackie, has given me permission to speak today about her beautiful daughter. Nicole was bullied to death, not only online but in reality and in her daily life. Bullying is poisoning virtual reality and driving some young people to utter despair. Nicole's death is not the first and it probably will not be the last. What is the Government doing to address bullying, in particular of young people?
