Mum: Why I posted video of my daughter being attacked online
A MUM says she hopes other parents will tell their children not to stand by and watch someone being bullied after video of an attack on her daughter went viral.
Kim Nicholl saw the video, which had been filmed by a bystander, on social media network Snapchat after 14-year-old Chloe was dragged to the ground, punched and kicked near the Bristol and Bath Science Park.
She posted the footage on her own Facebook page as she tried to identify the other girls involved in the incident.
But after being inundated with messages, Kim hopes other people can learn lessons from the shocking footage. She wants parents who have seen it to talk to their children about bullying and anti-social behaviour.
Kim said: “I hope that someone will watch it and sit down with their child and explain that if they saw something like this happen, they should not stand back and watch but go and get some help instead.”
