UK - Bullied girl's parents warn of 'huge pressures' of Facebook

(Guardian)
The parents of a 15-year-old schoolgirl who jumped to her death after being bullied on Facebook have spoken of the "huge pressures" placed on young people by social networking sites. Holly Grogan died after plunging 30ft from a road bridge near her home on to a dual carriageway, where she was hit by passing traffic. She was found at 11pm on Wednesday under a bridge in Churchdown, Gloucestershire, two miles from her home.
