Fighting back against cyber bullies

A Gloucestershire dad is fighting back against online bullies.

Paddy Clarke has come up with a computer programme which monitors your child's Facebook page for certain words and phrases and emails parents if there is a suspicion of bullying.

Paddy, who is a consultant at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and has four children himself, developed 'Know Diss' with business partner Alan Saul.
