THE former children’s minister has hailed students in Littlehampton for their work in tackling cyber-bullying.

On Friday, East Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton praised teenagers from The Littlehampton Academy, who won a competition to design the best social media site that would tackle the problem of online bullying.

The academy students’ efforts led them to victory in the Clear Computing schools challenge, earlier this month.

Mr Loughton said their ideas were ‘fantastic’ and praised the work by Rustington-based company Clear Computing, to highlight internet safety.

The winning teenagers were presented with a special trophy and an iPod shuffle each.
