An inquest will be held today into the death of a 14-year-old schoolgirl whose father claimed she was being targeted by cyberbullies.

Hannah Smith, from Lutterworth, Leicestershire, was found hanged in her bedroom on August 2 last year.

In the wake of Hannah's death, her father, David Smith, called for a change in the law to protect vulnerable youngsters from online abuse.

A full inquest into the death will take place at Leicester Town Hall today.
