Shocking image from Instagram

We checked accounts on Instagram and was completely shocked and sickened about how easy it was that these accounts were so easily seen and all were kids.

Graphic pictures were seen that we could not show to protect the reader. its possible  a young person who was being bullied or even worse,  might check these images out and start experimenting on themselves.

Over 200 kids die this way, Instagram needs to get its act together and ban all accounts that encourage self harm and suicide, any graphic images need to be banned with immediate effect.

A 14-year-old girl called Molly Russell took her life in 2017 and her father told the other media that “Instagram killed my daughter”

Tory MP Matt Hancock on BBC this morning told them that it would be a last resort but legislation could be made to ban social media.
