The parents of a bullied schoolgirl who died in a suicide pact with her best friend are suing the Welsh secondary school she attended.

Laura Rhodes, 13, of Cimla, Neath, took a drug overdose and died last September. She was discovered unconscious at home by her parents. Her friend, who was 14, survived.

Michael and Yvonne Rhodes said their daughter's death was triggered by bullying at Cefn Saeson comprehensive. The local authority said pastoral care at the school was "outstanding".
